NYCGO Logo "Fear? What should a man fear? It's all chance, chance rules our lives. Not a man on earth can see a day ahead, groping through the dark. Better to live at random, best we can." Or so he believed. Sophocles' classic Athenian tragedy tells the tale of Oedipus' twisted fate, which ends, famously, with eye gouging. The Faux-Real Theatre Company offers a truly Dionysian depiction, with an all-male cast employing elaborate masks and costumes, on Tuesday at 8pm at the East River Park Bandshell.
