Storyboard Text

  • I have sent Creon to the oracle to ask what can be done to lift this plague.
  • We must exile or kill the murder of King Lauis. He is here in Thebes.
  • I curse this murder. May he and exiled far from here. May gods deny him fruit of earth and womb.
  • You are lying. You cannot hurt anyone who sees the sun. Is it Creon who threatens me? I would say that you committed the murder on your own if it weren't for your eyes.
  • You are the murderer you speak of. You created your own doom and it is up to Apollo that you follow your terrible fate.
  • You foolish men! Oedipus, respect his oath of truth! Do not believe those soothsayers. They predicted Lauis would be killed by his own son, but he was not. He was killed by Mauders where the 3 roads meet
  • I do not want your throne! I have never longed for your power. When you take good me for bad me, and bad for good, a true friend gets thrown aside!
  • -You have plotted against me, to kill me and steal my throne! You advised me to talk to the prophet and he accuses me of murder?!?! - What did Lauis look like? Who was the man who escaped? bring him to me!
  • There was only one man who killed Lauis. Your queen, gave me a baby to leave on a hillside but I gave to him instead. It was Lauis' son. It was me who unbound your ankles.
  • Polybus is dead and he was not your father. The shepherd gave me him and I gave to the king to raise as his own.
  • What fate has befallen on me?! Married to my own mother and killed my father! Damned in my marriage and now in my life! what defilement have I become!?
  • The queen is dead my lord.
  • Go with your diginity. Remember you made your own destruction.
  • Please King Creon, exile me to where I will never here a voice again. Take care of my daughters. I deserve to go far away to the death forsaken for me on that hillside.
