Oedipus at Colonus is the last chapter in the Greek mythological tale of King Oedipus, the once revered ruler of Thebes, who was ostracized for unknowingly killing his own father and marrying his mother. The play shows a complex king attempting to redeem himself, and find some kind of peace in the face of exterior torments and internal feelings of anger and remorse. What follows is not only a single king in torment, but a whole family (and consequently an ancient Greek society) at war with itself, with the stakes being each character’s sanity and existence.
