  • Summary

  • After years of wandering in exile from Thebes, Oedipus arrives in a grove outside Athens. Blind and frail, he walks with the help of his daughter, Antigone. Father and daughter come to rest on the hallowed ground of the Eumenides, the Goddesses of Fate. It is the very ground that Oedipus was prophecised to die upon. An ancient tale of Gods, fate and prophecy, exclusively brought to you by Audible in a sensational new recording starring Hayley Atwell.

A classic, well performed

A truly classic play by one of the greatest playwrights of all times. It was a magnificent emotional experience.

Excellent Performances

I expected to be somewhat bored while listening to these, and just wanted to get a sense of the content for research purposes — but the performances were truly powerful and engaging. I’d recommend this free series to anyone interested in Ancient Greek tragedy.
