Oedipus El Rey

Luis Alfaro's intense contemporary adaptation of Sophocles' Oedipus, the King, is set in the prison system and a barrio of Los Angeles, California. With seamless choral song and movement, Alfaro's adaptation questions whether a Latino can change his tragic and predestined fate within the American culture, which is built on systemic racism.
