Words on the Show

John Bateman, Director

John Bateman_edited_edited.jpg
"What attracted me to this show is its foundational importance. Oedipus essentially the first play that we have as humans. Because of this, I wanted to focus the primitive nature of the story. By placing the setting during the end of the Mesolithic Era, it allows us to focus of the dichotomy between societal expectation and natural laws. What is the greatest good? How much are we the playthings of forces greater than us? These are the questions I'm interested in answering."
