This ultra-irreverent play follows our pal Oedipus - a little boy a lot like you - as he takes an exciting journey across ancient Greece to become king! Oedipus for Kids! turns the audience into attendees of the latest performance of the Fuzzy Duck Theatre Company, a three-person troupe dedicated to performing the classics for children. What was once a misguided - albeit educational - theatrical experience swiftly spirals into a Charybdis-like whirlpool of suck, and ultimately leads to a darkly comic denouement.
