Oedipus Schmoedipus takes dozens of the great theatre classics, picks out the death scenes, mixes them together and hands them back to the people.
Fed up with white men staging the deaths of white men in plays written by white men, the white ladies of post have pirated the classics to confront the great unknown.
Oedipus Schmoedipus is about death: real death, fake death, and the Western theatrical canon. It’s joyful and dark, stupid and smart, hilarious and confronting.
For this mammoth undertaking of gore, laments, requiems and war cries, genre-queer post are joined by 25 volunteers – a new cast rehearsed fresh for each performance, the afternoon of their performance.
