Pendragon's 'Oedipus' on stage at SUNY Potsdam Thursday and Friday
Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 3:16 pm

POTSDAM -- Pendragon Theatre will present "Oedipus" at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 and Friday, Feb. 28, in the Black Box Theater, located in SUNY Potsdam's new Performing Arts Center.

The Greek tragedy par excellence, "Oedipus" is a haunting story of a man's search to find the truth. Considered the first detective story, the drama is a kind of epic "whodunit," complete with mystery, murder and mayhem. Theatre's original "saint and sinner," Oedipus goes on a fact-finding mission that results in consequences beyond his imagination.

Tickets are available by calling 267-2277, www.cpspotsdam.org, or in the Performing Arts Center lobby.

Prices are $12 for the public and $10 for SUNY Potsdam faculty, staff or students.

The cast includes Josh Luteran (last seen as Stanley in "A Streetcar Named Desire") as Oedipus, Leslie Dame as Jocasta, Jordan Hornstein as Tiresias, Chris Leifheit as the Priest, and Jason Amrhein as Creon. "Oedipus" is directed by Pendragon Executive Artistic Director Karen Lordi-Kirkham.

Pendragon Theatre, the Adirondacks' only year-round professional theatre company, receives funding from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. For more information, visit www.pendragontheatre.org.
