Answer the following question in your response. Each student should then respond to at least two of your fellow classmates’ posts.
Go to Course Resources, Video Clips of Plays and find the video clips of Oedipus The King.  This version of the Sophocles play is the 1986 BBC production starring Michael Pennington and Claire Bloom.  The costuming for this production does not reflect the dress of ancient Greece but, instead, has been described as a “mixed-medley costumes, from the Victorian outfits worn by the chorus of Theban senators to Oedipus` white-silk suit with ambassadorial sash.”
Watch the first two clips of Oedipus the King. What effect do the costume choices have on you?  Can you think of a reason for the variation in the costumes and the time periods they represent?  Would you have preferred traditional Greek costume?  Why or why not?
