Profile

Aristotle called Sophocles’ drama about a royal child, born in Thebes and fated to kill his father and marry his mother, the perfect tragedy. It inspires pity and fear, and ends in such a way that we are swept clean. The playwright Luis Alfaro takes the ancient story and transplants it from Greece to South Central Los Angeles, where Oedipus is a gang leader rather than a king.
