The legends surrounding the royal house of Thebes inspired Sophocles to create a powerful trilogy of mankind’s struggle aginst fate. KING OEDIPUS tells of a man who brings pestilence to Thebes for crimes he doesn’t realise he has committed, and then inflicts a brutal punishment on himself. It is a devastating portrayl of a ruler brought down by his own oath. OEDIPUS AT COLONUS provides a fitting conclusion to the life of the aged and blinded king, while ANTIGONE depicts the fall of the next generation through the conflict between a young woman ruled by her conscience and a king too confident in his own authority.
