Told from the perspective of a Black Pentecostal preacher and his congregation, this play dramatizes legendary Greek character Oedipus' last days on Earth. Having blinded himself out of guilt, Oedipus makes a solace-seeking pilgrimage to Colonus, the place where he believes he is meant to die. Primarily through song, the preacher and his congregation translate this story of redemption into a Christian parable
The Theban plays ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
Bearer of an almost unspeakable, immutable fate, Oedipus yet feels himself a man chosen--that is, favored--by the gods. Now an old man, blind and outcast, Oedipus wanders through Greece guided by his daughter Antigone until he comes to Colonus, where he knows he will die. This second play of the Oedipus saga finds Oedipus railing against the indignities of old age, possibly reflecting the authors own sentiments, as Sophocles was nearly 90 at the time of its composition

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
From John Lamond, the infamous producer/director of Felicity and Australia After Dark comes this depraved melange of sex, murder and psychotic mayhem. Jenny Neumann stars as a frigid young theater actress traumatized by her mother s horrific death years earlier. But when a series of brutal stabbings rocks her latest production, the drama queen prone to bloody hallucinations fears that she herself may be the killer. Are all actresses insane or is the stage set for a shocking final twist
