Oedipus Rex [1957]

I finally read the play on the 6:30 AM train to work this week. It was readily clear to me the genetic lineage of many modern films and TV series that was first seeded from this 2,444-year-old play, and that must’ve been scandalous in its own age. However, as with all plays, it’s quite another and better thing to see it performed.
