Amanda Muzichuck THEA – 1120 March 31, 2011 “Oedipus Rex” After viewing Sophocles’ “Oedipus Rex” video clip, I was able to piece together many of the different topics that were discussed throughout this theatre class. More specifically, I was able to better understand the concepts related to the style of a production and what a Greek Tragedy really is. I was not very familiar with the play or story of “Oedipus Rex”. After watching the video clip, I did a little more research into what the story really was and absolutely fell in love. The plot was extremely fascinating and tragic all the same. The acting style seen in the video clip is obviously not life-like. The style of production allows this to happen because it is a re-enactment of the original play that was written in 427 BCE (the Façade Stages). The ancient-style costumes, the use of masks, and Roman background scenery are not inappropriate at all for this type of play. In fact, without them, I think that the meaning or seriousness of the play would not be as intense.
