About The Performance
Columbia University School of Arts MFA Acting Cohort of 2024 presents Craig Lucas’ Small Tragedy, directed by Danny Sharron.
Backstage relationships and global politics unexpectedly collide during an amateur production of Oedipus Rex. This powerful, touching, and rich comedy from Craig Lucas insists, gently, but an insistence nonetheless, that the everyday tribulations and triumphs of contemporary life are worthy of staging in the same way as the celebrated works of Sophocles. As tensions among actors in Oedipus grow, reality indeed begins to emulate art in surprising ways.
This play has a runtime of two hours and contains verbal descriptions of violence committed during the Yugoslav Wars, including references to sexual assault.
