A New Electrifying Adaptation of Oedipus Rex is Coming to St Andrews.

Mermaids Performing Arts Fund presents an entirely new adaptation of Sophocles’ infamous tragedy Oedipus Rex>, an enduring tale of conflict, identity, memory and power, coming to St Andrews’ Byre Theatre on February 11th-12th.

This striking interpretation of the original text promises to combine a personal and political narrative in a style rendered relatable for contemporary audiences. Replete with various experimental elements - including videography and live DJ-ing - Gabriele Uboldi’s production is the culmination of a remarkable collaborative effort designed around issues that remain relevant for our society today. The vision offers a unique blend of antiquity, modernity and metatheatricality that has the potential to challenge audience expectations and explore a classical story in an immersive, dynamic and provocative manner.
