Oedipus at Barons Court



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A NEW production of Sophocles' Oedipus runs from November 2 to November 12, 2005, at the Barons Court Theatre in Comeragh Road, Fulham, W14 9RH.

The 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, highlighting the pitfalls of leadership and man's powerlessness at the hands of fickle gods.

The cast features Kester Hynds (as Oedipus), Francis Moore, Hannah Richards, Alexander Gordon Wood, Maeve Whelan, Andy Hamilton and Allon Sylvain.

Oedipus is produced by Chelsea Players, a London-based theatre company staging new writing, drama and comedy both in London and at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Recent shows include the world premiere of Lindy Henny's drama The Empty Chair; the European premiere of the Australian black comedy Milo's Wake by Margery and Michael Forde; and Phil Young's award-winning devised piece Crystal Clear.

Tickets: £10 (£8 concessions). Call the Box Office on 020 8932 4747
