This is unique and wonderful theater. The whole ensemble was overwhelming, especially Oedipus Rex. Of the many themes which are articulated, the contrast between old and new culture I found of most interest. The playwright makes the point that cockfighting the centuries-old – goes back to classic Greece. We have this relatively grizzly fight to the death, activity contrasted with the, to me, mundane, sanitized, and superficial activities of the 21st century – Disney World and McDonald’s. This is a work on many levels which resonates with the human condition- real art

I'm glad you brought up the cultural critique -- amusing, soft spoken in this play but active. Thanks!
