    This play combines both comedy and tragedy in the story of three women—mother, daughter and servant—bound together by blood and loyalty. In this new twist on the Oedipus complex, we take a look at the myth from Jocasta's complex point of view as a wife, devoted mother and conflicted daughter. These are strong and complex women who struggle against their fate—and sometimes one another. But their love and devotion is the link that binds them together in life and death.
