This reworking of the Oedipal myth focuses on Queen Jocasta who was fated to marry her son. A highly theatrical piece using heightened language and incorporating the wild Furies and the seductive Sphinx, Jocasta revisits timeless themes of free will and determinism, but with a fresh slant in the light of current debates over genetic determinism and the personal accountability of politicians, CEOs and individuals.
'[A] very powerful play. Its language combines the heightened style of classical Greek drama with a contemporary clarity and economy.' Michael Edgar, Artistic Director, CentrStage Theatre Company
