Oedipus the King

Oedipus the King

Storyboard Text

  • Oh no, really? What was it that I said that you cannot seem to shake, Oedipus?
  • Wait, Jocasta... something that you just said really disturbed me and I cannot get it off of my mind...
  • Why yes, it is true. He was killed right before you came to Thebes and became king actually.
  • I heard you say that Laius was killed where three roads meet. Is this true?
  • As you wish Oedipus. May I ask why you are acting this way and why this information is haunting you?
  • Oh lord, this information is adding up in a way I never would have suspected. Tell me more about Laius, what did he look like?
  • Dear Oedipus, I am unsure of what you mean but I will continue telling you about the situation. There were five men in Laius' party and I was told all of this information by a slave from the royal household.
  • You see, I am afraid the blind prophet has seen us. Things are adding up in my head in ways I cannot explain. I am putting together a puzzle of information.
  • I have figured it out. The prophecy has come true and I have not even realized it. Laius was my real father and I killed him. Then I came to Thebes in an attempt to escape the prophecy, but instead ended up marrying my own mother!
  • CHORUS: While this prophecy would hurt our king, we hope that it remains true. For if it does not, our gods are defeated. We have faith in our gods to speak truth and do the right thing, so please may this prophecy be true.
