Oedipus The King

Presented by Smart Artz Theatre Inc.

OEDIPUS THE KING

Cast: Eashaan Dassanayaka, Scott Robinson, Tan Mock, Juliet Hayday, Robert Pyers, Teresa Bottoms, Noel Whiteside, Sophie Koschmann, Brandi Galpin, Elsbeth Schneider, Louis Willemson and Akala Heinzel

Our 2024 production unfolds as a murder mystery, a political thriller, and a psychological whodunit. Its central premise is a man determined to track down, expose, and punish an assassin. It is about the inevitability of fate; the characters hope to escape their tragic ends, but their very actions bring those ends closer.

We are thrilled to present a collaboration with the Horsham Town Hall and SPARK Arts Program, a modern language translation of the iconic Ancient Greek tragedy, Oedipus the King.

Award-winning director Amy Anselmi presents a cast of talented local actors led by exciting newcomer Eashaan Dassanayaka as Oedipus in a production that promises to keep you on the edge of your seat.

A special schools performance will be held on Thursday 30 May, 11am. Please get in touch with the SPARK Arts Education on 5382 9575 or email cindy.francis@hrcc.vic.gov.au if you would like more information.
