This intense production boasted a simple yet imaginatively constructed set and a charming cast, with Jez Hughes giving a remarkable portrayal of Oedipus. Focusing on the ‘excitement and dread’ contained in the tragic tale, the effortless originality of this fast-paced interpretation would undoubtedly enchant anyone remotely interested in Greek mythology. And not even the cold could stop me from enjoying this charming production.
