Cornell Theatre: “GREEK”

Steven Berkoff’s exciting retelling of the ancient Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex follows the hero (Eddy) as he voyages beyond the East End of contemporary England and encounters love, wealth, and his true identity. Exploring the story from a whole new angle, Berkoff emphasizes the positive and redemptive power of love. This modern, twisted version of the myth combines Shakespearean grandeur with Cockney slang to riotous effect, creating an electric and often aggressive atmosphere. Don’t miss this punk “love poem” to the spirit of “Oedipus Rex”!
