King Oedipus is, after Hamlet, the second most famous play in world drama. The origins of the story are rooted deep in Greek mythology. The Sophocles version opposes individual self determination against the needs and spiritual judgments of the community. A sacrifice is needed. That ensuing ritual is our production.

At the end of the 19th century, old hobos told tall tales at fireside chats, which inspired the heyday of radio. In what the Los Angeles Times called “a skillful play with a deft heart,” Davey Quinn takes to the air waves to share his boyhood adventures with his young lady love, Frankie. The thing is, Frankie’s blind. But as Quinn makes fame through his stories on the mic, her legend is made. John Olive has created a humorous yet touching tale that will leave you dreaming up more stories about the adventures of Davey Quinn and his childhood romance, Frankie the blind girl.
