Oedipus the King

Storyboard Text

  • Creon! How dare you conspire against me with that prophet! I'll have you know I can send you to death and exile!
  • Why do you men shout at one another?
  • The prophet has charged me with Laius' murder.
  • All prophecies are false. Lauis was killed at a three-way crossroads.
  • Jocasta, I might have been the one who murdered Laius...
  • I send for the man who survived that attack, the shepherd.
  • I must summon Oedipus!
  • I have came from Corinth to inform Oedipus that Polybus is dead. Corinth has asked Oedipus to come and rule there in his place.
  • Worry not, for Polybus and Merope are not your biological parents.
  • This is great.. [But.. they still claimed I slept with my mother..]
