Scoop Theatre – Oedipus plays

For its 11th year in The Scoop at More London, the award-winning 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. Whether you’re new to these masterpieces or already a fan, what better place to enjoy them than beneath a summer sky on the banks of the Thames.

Prince of Thebes

Date: Every Wednesday to Sunday / 7 August – 1 September

Time: 18:00 – 19:00

Aimed at a family audience and those encountering Oedipus for the first time, the irresistible blend of comedy, adventure, music and puppetry will introduce you to the young Prince as he thwarts magical and mortal enemies in his quest to lift an evil spell.

Oedipus and Antigone
