Everyone makes mistakes once in a while. Everyone deviates from the plan. But what do we do when our mistakes have been made before? What if our mistakes are the plan? What if those mistakes can no longer be undone? What is our fate? Are we merely the actors in a script that has already been written? By our parents? By the gods? By our own bodies? How can we see through ourselves enough to stop before it is too late? How can we ever know ourselves well enough?’

Robert Icke

"We travel back in time with Oedipus to find out the truth, to discover who he is. At first he arrogantly thinks he knows everything, that he will give people the solution to the past and the future, yet in the end he realizes he knows nothing. It was all an illusion and a lie, and that somehow makes us all wonder who we are, what our identity is, why we were born, where we are going. These are questions that, like Oedipus, we can all ask ourselves... "
