“Not Your Mother’s Oedipus:” A Modern re-telling of a Classic The Cornell College Department of Theatre and Dance is proud to announce its production of Steven Berkoff's GREEK, running March 2nd – 5th in Kimmel Theatre on the Cornell College Campus. The Department's new head of acting, Caroline Price, directs this exciting retelling of the ancient Greek tragedy, Oedipus Rex. This contemporary retelling offers a fresh and edgy approach to our hero's journey, his search for his true identity and the redemptive power of love. “This is not your mother's Oedipus,” says Price, “audiences should expect a modern, racy, and snarky version of Sophocles' masterpiece. Berkoff takes the story of Oedipus, wraps it in dark humor, and slaps you in the face with its South London feel.” This modern, twisted version of the myth combines Shakespearean grandeur, with Cockney slang to a riotous effect; creating an electric and often aggressive atmosphere. Price's bold staging of this punk "love poem" to the spirit of Oedipus takes hold and won’t let you look away. Cornell College Junior, Bobby Nowak, plays our hero, Eddie. He is joined by area equity actor, Patrick Du Laney, Cornell alum MC Cole (’16) and area actor Robyn Calhoun. Scenic and Lighting Design by Scott Olinger, projections design by Kristen Geisler, Costume Design by Jenny Nutting Kelchen. On opening night audiences are invited to stay for a post-show reception sponsored by Mount Vernon’s own First Street Community Center: Uptown Theatre and Dance Arts Iowa on Thursday, March 2nd immediately following the performance. Also, each night before the show, and at intermission, audiences are welcome to enjoy a cash bar brought to you by Bon Appetit.
