About Oedipus El Rey

Set in South Central LA, "Oedipus El Rey" is a gritty and electrifying take on the Greek tragedy, written by the acclaimed Magic Theatre playwright Luis Alfaro. Oedipus is reimagined as a young man whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar beyond the prison walls where he’s spent his life. In a place where everyone is trapped by desperation, violence, and history, can one man transcend his own story? Love, family, and belief collide in this chilling, muscular odyssey that asks: what’s fate and what’s just the system?
