O!Edipus

A World War 2 allied prisoner of war camp. British Colonel Humphrey Huvar, American Flight Lieutenant Stuckit and Sikh Sepoy Charsingh Singh of the British Indian Army, have been charged, under bane of death, to perform a production of Oedipus for their fellow prisoners. But without a copy of the text and a common world-view, madness will inevitably ensue!

Fall about in amazement as three buffoons explore the agonies of empire, colonialism, incest, defecation, destiny and theater-making in this piece of ridiculous clown-drama. Come O! with us for about an hour or so.

Written and directed by Ravi Kapoor and performed by him, Russell Milton and Norman Scott.
