  5. Oedipus, The Origins Of Drama As We Know It, Explores Identity Through Community And Truth

    As individuals, we are each connected through community. Ideally, we feel the responsibility to pay homage to our history, while looking forward to the potential of our future. Hope Summer Repertory Theatre presents Oedipus—an exploration and discovery of identity through community and truth—part of the 45th season playing at the DeWitt Theatre from June 24–August 10. With this production, we are committed to providing the audience with the genesis of theatre. While Oedipus lies within the origins of drama, it is still relevant to our community just as it was 2,500 years ago.
