Unfolding in real-time, Oedipus for Kids! turns the audience into attendees of the latest performance of the Fuzzy Duck Theatre Company, a three-person troupe dedicated to performing the classics for children. Having had success with previous offerings such as Uncle Tommy’s Cabin, company founder Alistair has decided that the next logical step is tackling Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex with songs such as “What’s It Like When Ya Get The Plague?” and “A Little Complex.” But all is not as pleasant as it seems with the Fuzzy Ducks: Alistair is in the middle of a bitter divorce with troupe member Catalina, who suspects something is up when she learns that tonight’s audience includes the executives from sponsor Beanz! Coffee for Kids. Evan, the third troupe member, is a newly-trained recent hire with questionable acting methods. He uses these to play Oeddy, “a little boy a lot like you,” who runs away from home when he finds out that he is destined to do something terrible to his Mommy and Daddy.
