Open Recruitment


Be part of the international tour of Oedipus Schmoedipus

Oedipus Schmoedipus, a show by Sydney company post, is now touring internationally. Featuring death scenes from several hundred of the greatest plays of all time, patched together and brought to life Frankenstein-style, the Hong Kong production is a Cantonese adaptation of the extravagant spectacle of shuffling-off-the-mortal-coil from Australia’s silliest, smartest theatre group, post – Zoë Coombs Marr, Mish Grigor and Natalie Rose and boasts two of HKRep’s most screwball actors. Joyful and dark, Oedipus Schmoedipus is a new bid for theatre history – join us to find out more!
