Oedipus the King. Oedipus the soccer fanatic. Oedipus el padre. Oedipus el barrabrava. 

Written by Julián Mesri

Sans Comedia's adaptation of the Sophoclean tragedy transposes the action to a sports bar. Performed on location, the actors are not told the score of the show which plays parallel to the action.
