I’m not Oedipus
July 10

Written and performed by Jay Nachman

July 10, 9:15 p.m and Saturday, July 11, 9:15 p.m. $15For tickets: Capital Fringe Festival Box Office

“I’ve described “I’m Not Oedipus” as a play about death, family relationships and religion. With jokes. The shortversion is that after my mom died, my dad began dating very quickly and the family got … dysfunctional. “I’m NotOedipus” follows the path I took following my mom’s death, with detours along the way for topics like sex and rock &roll. As I’ve said previously, I think it’s the perfect show for anyone who has, or ever had, a mother. I hope you’llcheck it out. I know some of the other Fringe Festival acts have much bigger names than mine; some with 16­17,even 20 letters, and mine is only a mere 10, so I truly appreciate your attendance and interest. And I hope you enjoythe play.”­ Jay Nachman

The atrical conventions of Shakespeare’s day necessitated an extremely interesting deception: a unisex cast, playing both male and female roles. In seventeenth century England, boys would have played women’s roles; today, we have the chance to turn the tables in that “merry war.” The Rudes’ Much Ado is set in 1943, in the midst of World War II. The men are all off to war, and the woman are left behind, to put on a play in their absence. An all­-female cast assumes a host of roles traditionally played by men, adding one more layer of illusion to the mix

Who are you? Are you what you should have been? How did you become who you are? Can you face your inaction, your culpability, your own judgment? Theatre DuJour presents an aural spectacle that invades your awareness and permeates your experience. “A spectacle without pictures, in as much as they give no picture of the world, ”as described by the Austrian author, who wrote this “Speak­-in” in 1966. The words of this spectacle take us from birth to the present, from awareness of self to awareness of action, from duty to demands, from expression to language, and from what we thought to what we became. Featuring Jerry Herbilia and Kris Roth. Sound design by Nate Taylor. Back by popular demand following a successful short run in November in the 10:00pm time slot. Don’t miss this chance to see Self Accusation before the production heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland as a part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest theatre festival in the world.
