London's Free Open Air Theatre Season (previously known as Steam Industry Free Theatre) presents The Thebans directed by Phil Willmott; two fully staged productions inspired by the ancient Greek city of Thebes.
As twilight gathers around More London, older audiences are invited to discover the terrible fate of the adult Oedipus and his children in a vivid new production combining masterpieces by Aeschylus and Sophocles.
Chronicling the downfall of the Theban Royal family this epic story of a proud father and daughter battling the gods for survival echoes down the centuries and asks us to consider the role destiny plays in all our lives.
