Ivy Tech Student Productions puts on ‘king oedipus’

Ivy Tech Student Productions will perform the original play ‘king oedipus’ at Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center on October 17-18 and 23-25 at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are now available for purchase. ‘king oedipus,’ written by Kelly Lusk and directed by Paul Daily, is a modern adaptation of the Oedipus myth.

“The play was written specifically for Ivy Tech Community College and our students, and it has been a great experience bringing a new script to life,” said Paul Daily, Artistic Director of Ivy Tech Waldron and Dean of the School of Fine Arts. “The cast includes six current Ivy Tech students and four alumni.”

“This show is uniquely cool in its own way,” said Maya Ferrario, who plays Bethany/Sphynx in ‘king oedipus.’ “It’s a brand new play written from the perspective of someone that everyone’s heard of, with language that is realistic but in a completely unrealistic world. Kelly Lusk did a fantastic job with the script. It’s so complex, and even though everyone has heard of the story of Oedipus, they don’t know his side of the story.”

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Purchase tickets at www.bctboxoffice.com.
