O.REX

~ The ultimate murder mystery ~

O.REX is a brand new translation of Sophocles' Oedipus Rex, re-envisioned by Gia Forakis as a Greek-Noir Classic*

 This site-specific production will take place in a NYC nightclub,

--designed as a full-immersion experience!

The audience will be seated at nightclub tables as this legendary, drama unfolds around them and as the nightclub is transformed into the world of 1940's film noir.  In O.REX, Oedipus is no longer a royal king, but rather, Kingpin of a fashionable nightclub. In this production audiences are invited to come dressed in black & white, drinks are served to prevent symptoms of The Plague, and Choral Odes --re-invented as period ballads-- become the acts on the nightclub stage, as live music, original cinematic underscoring and video projections enhance
this gripping drama of the ultimate murder mystery!

[*Greek Noir = tragedy + film noir: a new genre created by GF&CO].
