the cost of living


A man sits in the audience seats

while the audience is above the stage between the lights.

Laius hangs above the ground in a position of power

while being interrogated by the man.

Oedipus and Jocasta are nailed to the floor as slaves to his decisions.

The play is a narration and revival of what happened,

while in the end they kill each other as part of a game
