‘Oedipus Rex’ reading kicks off Centenary Stage Co.’s ‘What Is Truth?’ Series:
Partly as a response to living through a time in history when truth itself is under siege, the Centenary Stage Company is presenting a series called “What Is Truth? And Does It Matter?” It begins with a free staged reading of — and discussion about — Sophocles’ classic tragedy “Oedipus Rex” at the Kutz Theatre at the Lackland Performing Arts Center in Hackettstown Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. Master classes have already been presented in anticipation of the readings, but are not mandatory.
Future installments of “What Is Truth?,” which is part of the Gates Ferry Lecture Series, will include a staged reading of scenes from Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” Nov. 14 at Lackland’s Sitnik Theatre, and a full production of Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People from Feb. 15 to March 3 at the Sitnik Theatre. The “King Lear” reading will be preceded by a TedX Talk on the subject of “What Is Truth? And Does It Matter?” For more information, visit centenarystageco.org.
The series was conceived and is being led by Randall Duk Kim and Anne Occhiogrosso, who are married, and who have both taught at Centenary University and taken part in Centenary Stage Company productions (in February and March, Kim co-starred in CSC’s “Art,” which was directed by Occhiogrosso).
