Oedipus (Wyndham's Theatre)

Some subjects never age or fade, and this is one of them. Oedipus was written by the Ancient Greek playwright Sophocles. Almost 2500 years later it still has the power to draw huge audiences wherever it lands. This time it’s being produced by David Icke, on stage at Wyndhams Theatre. The production originally debuted in Amsterdam during 2019 to great acclaim, then moved on to delight audiences at the Edinburgh festival. The English language debut was in the diary for 2021 with Helen Mirren lined up as Jocasta, then covid stopped the show in its tracks.

Now it’s finally back, on at Wyndham’s for a strictly limited season from 4th October 2024. And there’s a real treat in store thanks to Mark Strong, who plays Oedipus, and Lesley Manville who takes the role of Jocasta. It’s Mark Strong’s first stage appearance since 2016’s The Red Barn, and Lesley Manville has been busy working on seasons 5 and 6 of TV’s smash hit fiction series about the royal family, The Crown, playing Princess Margaret. With acting talent like this and David Icke at the helm, the signs and portents are very good indeed. Sophocles would be delighted.
