The Theban Cycle

The Theban Cycle is an adaptation combining the three classic Greek plays by Sophocles - Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone - into a single play. The story follows the royal family of Thebes as they make mistake after mistake, corrupted by power. Struggling through power plays, murder, shocking familial ties, and suicide; they are caught continually in the public eye. The Theban Cycle explores the traditional themes of Greek tragedy, with a modern perspective and a longer generational view. Touching on themes like gender, family, and political control, the play’s timeliness is almost chilling. Watch to see if the royal family will learn that, though they continually try to battle fate, the real battle is with themselves.

The Theban Cycle is a vehicle not only for excellent thematic inquiry but has been an opportunity for student driven work. The play is the result of a year long study by its author and assistant director, Kirsten Mettler ‘19. Senior Charley Tiernan is the production’s choreographer, and the sound design, including original music, is by senior Yonatan Hirshfield.
