SEMO Little Theater Group to perform Oedipus the King



The Fall Into Arts Committee is announcing its opportunity for theatergoers
at their September festival.

Members of the SEMO Little Theater Group are rehearsing their production of Oedipus The King by Sophocles, translated by Nicholas Rudall.

The performances will take place as part of the Fall Into Arts Festival on Friday, September 6 and Saturday, September 7.

Both performances begin at 7:00 p.m.

Oedipus The King is a wonderful Greek drama filled with intrigue, surprises,
and tragedy.

There is murder, love, sorrow, and a plot twist to rival the
best mysteries.

Nicholas Rudall's new translation remains true to the original text while fashioning a language of grace and power, with contemporary players and theatergoers in mind.

The SEMO Little Theater Group will be transforming this classic mythical cornerstone of Western
civilization into a Depression Era Courthouse drama.

The play will take place at the Dunklin County Courthouse in Downtown Kennett.

More information on the Fall Into Arts Festival and the schedule of events
can be found online at the KAFTA website,
