Description A democratic theatrical extravaganza! This show is about death: real death, fake death, and the Western theatrical Canon. Oedipus Schmoedipus is an intentionally impossible task, an ambitious epic complied of all the death scenes ever written. These death scenes will be dismembered, catalogued in a computer database and reordered to establish new narratives, and a new theatre show: a collective manifesto on death.
