CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


Oedipus archiveThe Land of Thebes is dying. In order to restore balance King Oedipus is forced to unmask a killer, but his zealous search uncovers a more terrifying secret. Sophocles' play is a mixture of classical tragedy, whodunnit and political thriller.

Author Sophocles.

Performed from a version of Sophocles' classic adapted by David Stuttard, Oedipus is very much a play for today. With an epidemic sweeping the nation, the head-of-state is so certain of his own abilities that any criticism is seen as a threat. But what if he himself is the problem? And how will he accept the truth?Adapted by David Stuttard. Company Actors of Dionysus. Director Marcello Magni. Director Tamsin Shasha.
