THE BALLAD OF EDDIE AND JO

Genre: Drama
by David Sard, directed by Lorca Peress

The Ballad of Eddie and Joe, a modern re-telling of the tragedy of Oedipus and Jocasta set in a working class neighborhood of a decaying American city. In the play, old, blind Eddie looks back on his life as an alienated youth growing up in a foster care family who stumbles into a fight with small time gangster and inadvertently kills him. Later when meeting the gangster's widow he is drawn into a relationship by a powerful feeling of mutual affinity. This reinvention of the old story presents the full spectrum of emotions on the eternal dilemma of man's struggle to find love and integrity in a baffling universe.
