SARANAC LAKE — Pendragon Theatre will present Sophocles’, “Oedipus,” translated by Steven Berkoff.
It will perform on Nov. 15, 16 , 18, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors and $12 for students. All matinee performance tickets are $12. “Oedipus,” will tour to schools throughout the Adirondack Park for the rest of the fall and winter. Please contact the theater for information regarding booking a performance.
The Greek tragedy par excellence, “Oedipus,” is a haunting story of a man’s search to find the truth. Considered the first detective story, the drama is a kind of epic who-done-it complete with mystery, murder and mayhem. Theater’s original “saint and sinner,” Oedipus goes on a fact-finding mission that results in consequences beyond his imagination.
The cast includes Josh Luteran (last seen as Stanley in “A Streetcar Named Desire”) as Oedipus, Leslie Dame as Jocasta, Jordan Hornstein as Tiresias, Chris Leifheit as the Priest and Jason Amrhein as Creon and is directed by Pendragon’s Executive Artistic Director Karen Lordi-Kirkham.
Pendragon Theatre is located at 15 Brandy Brook Ave. Saranac Lake. For more information or to purchase tickets call 891-1854, email info@pendragontheatre.org or visit Facebook, Twitter and PendragonTheatre.org.
