This interactive event will allow audience members a rare look at the rehearsal process for a complex classical play. Focussing on several key scenes in OEDIPUS TYRANNOS by Sophocles, Carey Perloff will work with a group of actors to explore how to interpret, activate, imagine and perform those scenes, looking at the many possibilities the text provides. Audience members will have an opportunity to weigh in on those choices and ask questions of the creative team.
Presented and directed by Carey Perloff, artistic director emerita, American Conservatory Theater
