Wassail Theatre presents their witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic adaptation of Oedipus Rex – expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness.
A blind man walks into a village pub and tells anyone who’ll listen that he was once the king of darts. An adaptation of the Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex reimagined in the world of pub darts and disco featuring live music, flying arrows and a portable dartboard. Rex The King is the story of a Somerset darts champion who ruled the world, but lost it all. It’s a theatrical tale that’s witty, uplifting and ludicrously tragic: expect blood and sweat, tears and beers, not to mention plenty of songs and silliness.
Wassail Theatre unites communities through stories that inspire them by giving people unexpected, surprising and positive experiences of theatre. Wassail is based in Somerset and exists through a network of associate artists from across the UK interested in bringing new audiences and new ideas together.
