|The Oxford English Dictionary have named ‘post-truth’ as 2016’s word of the year. A fitting time, then, for the UK premiere of Thebes Land – an electrifying new play about truth and fiction, storytelling and reality.
Think Oedipus Rex meets Inception. This is a multi-layered, ‘no holds barred’ kind of drama… but it does take place behind bars.
Starring Trevor White (Long Day’s Journey Into Night, West End; Enron, Royal Court) and Alex Austin (Fury, Soho Theatre; Yen, Royal Court).
