Small Tragedy (TCG Edition)

96 pages1 hour


"Full of itnerest, intelligence, amusement, and spine-chilling verity. . . . A play to see and ponder, staying with you, in typical Lucas fashion, long after you leave the theater."—Village Voice

An amateur production of Oedipus elicits social and political tension among its actors, generating meaningful revelations about tragedy in the contemporary world. Lucas's topical and complex play is a remarkably funny, sharply articulated missive aimed at the heart of a generation.

Craig Lucas's plays include Ode to Joy, Missing Persons, Reckless, Blue Window, Prelude to a Kiss, God's Heart, The Dying Gaul, Stranger, Prayer for My Enemy, The Singing Forest, and the book for The Light in the Piazza (music and lyrics by Adam Guettel).
