Summary Sophocles' Theban plays - 'Oedipus Tyrannos', 'Oedipus at Kolonos' and 'Antigone' - stand at the fountainhead of world drama; they tell the story of Oedipus, Jocasta and Antigone, and the ancient Greek theme of power both mortal and godlike is brought to the fore with stunning vitality. 'Oedipus at Kolonos' is the middle play in the trilogy. In the aftermath of the events in Thebes, the blinded Oedipus is led to Kolonos by his daughter Antigone and his tragic fate is completed. Timberlake Wertenbaker's translation of Sophocles' trilogy of Theban plays was premiered by the Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford upon Avon, in 1991, under the collective title of 'The Thebans'.
