Your assignment is to adapt Oedipus into a different time and setting. How can you update the story into a new setting while maintaining, if not enhancing, its urgency and relevancy? Make sure you know the play well. You can modify major plot points, but do not omit them. Everything from the original should add up, just within a different context. The bones of the original ought to be unmistakable. Make sure to connect all the dots. Be able to explain why you think your adaptation is appropriate and effective. Have fun with this. Be creative.
* In addition to the scenario, provide a brief explanation, in paragraph form, for why you think your update and setting works for Oedipus. As always, be specific.
