Summary

Since it was first performed in Athens in the 420s BC, "Oedipus the King" has been widely regarded as Sophocles' greatest tragedy and one of the foundation stones of Western drama. Don Taylor's translation, accurate yet poetic, was made for a BBC TV production of the Theban plays in 1986, which he also directed.
