Storyboard Text

  • Oedipus
  • Fortune is my mother and the changing moons My brethren, and with them I wax and wane. Thus born why should I fear to trace my birth?
  • Chorus
  • Jocasta
  • Oedipus
  • ... I married my own son. I can not live with this horrible deed.
  • Herdsman
  • Through pity, master, for the babe. I thought He'd take it to the country where he lived; But he preserved it for the worst of woes. For if you are truly what this man says, God help you! You were born to misery.
  • Jocasta
  • As for the child, it was but three days old, When Laius, its ankles pierced and pinned. Together, gave it to be cast away. By others on the trackless mountain side.
  • Chorus
  • Oedipus' hubris begins to lead him to his downfall. Even with many warnings to stop trying to uncover the secrets of his past, Oedipus believes that he has outwitted the gods.
  • Jocasta listens as the herdsman tell Oedipus the story of what they really did with Laius' son. It is at this moment that Jocasta realizes the terrible mistake she has made and begins to plan her suicide.
  • Jocasta says there is no way Oedipus could be her son because her baby was killed many years ago. She doesn't take any responsibility for the infanticide.
