Oedipus sits under a tree at Colonus directing a re-enactment of his life. But as a fictional character is he bound to enact the same story the same way? Why not create his own interpretation of events? The result is more deconstruction than reconstruction as, in true postmodern style, he builds his own fiction from the fictions of others introducing some surprising characters (eg Christ, Godot, Alice, the Dead Frogs Society) and coming to a surprising conclusion.
'The show is not really post-modernist or even post-post-modernist but rather a bit of a look at what's left when you take the posts away...'
