About Oedipus

Behind every great man is a great woman.

Election night. The polls predict a landslide victory. Everything is about to change.

Starring the internationally renowned, multi award-winning Mark Strong and Lesley Manville, Sophocles’ epic tragedy is transformed into an essential, explosive human thriller.

After his revelatory Oresteia, visionary director Robert Icke (1984, The Doctor) reimagines another Ancient Greek tragedy, bringing the secrets of the past bursting into the present.

Following hit runs at Internationaal Theater Amsterdam and the Edinburgh Festival, Oedipus comes to Wyndham’s Theatre for a strictly limited run.
