Storyboard Text

  • A blight is on our harvest in the fields, A blight upon the grazing flocks and herds, A blight on women in labor, and all around
  • Alas, alas, what misery it is to be wise When wisdom profits nothing! This old story i had forgotten; I should not have come here.
  • Now all my needs are satisfied through you, And I have nothing to fear; but if I were king, My acts would often run counter to my will.
  • The Priest informs Oedipus that there is a plague and famine that has been brought throughout​ the city of Thebes
  • Misguided men, why are you raising such a loud noise? Aren't you ashamed, when the whole land lies suffering, thus to voice your private injuries? Go in, Oedipus; Go home, Creon, and stop making a public scandal of a petty grief.
  • Oedipus and Teiresias get into an argument over Oedipus' arrogance on being able to listen and accept the truth
  • "My father is no more to me than one who is nothing?"
  • "since polybus was nothing to you in blood."
  • Creon says he has the benefits of power without the burdens of being king.
  • "oh light may I behold you nevermore! I stand in a wretch, in birth,in wedlock cursed, a parricide, incestously, triply cursed."
  • "god help you! You were born to misery"
  • Jocasta comes in from the palace and tries to break up the argument between Creon and Oedipus
  • Oedipus realizes that his father isn't Polybus and that the chance of the prophecy being fulfilled is still a possibility.
