Ed Opus (Rex)
Ed Opus (Rex)
By William Gleason. With special thanks to Sophocles.

Cast: 3m., 4w. (extra girls.) Based roughly on the intricate plot of Oedipus Rex, this comedy/farce relates the adventures of Ed Opus, beloved and loving student body president of West Thebes High School. See Ed Opus track down the unknown stranger who did away with Teen Angel. Empathize with Ty Reesias, president of the Soothsayer Club, as he tells Ed Opus who the culprit really is. Let your heart soar with Ed's girlfriend, Yo Yo Costa, as she solves the riddle of the matching birthmarks that resemble a Maltese Falcon straddling Detroit. The set is minimal—the fun maximal! One ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 35 minutes.
