The land ruled by King Oedipus is plagued by ill-fortune and the people are promised relief by the gods if the slayer of the former king is apprehended and punished. This does not bode well for King Oedipus and his Queen. Adapted by William Butler Yeats and performed in masks by the Stratford, Ontario, Shakespearean Festival Players.
