Summary
Presents the second of the three Theban plays by Sophocles in a contemporary translation that remains true to the text, setting the plays in the past yet not the distant past and dispensing with the masks. This second segment of the trilogy recounts the final days of the blind Oedipus in which he rails against the indignities of old age
