Hey kids! Join your pal Oedipus - a little boy a lot like you - as he takes an exciting journey across ancient Greece to become king! You'll learn all about familial love, communicable diseases, and the ins and outs of baklava marketing! Sing along to favourite songs like "A Little Complex," "What’s It Like When Ya Get The Plague?" and "My Lover Is My Husband Is My Son"! ...Warning: May contain manslaughter, eye-gouging, and parental incest…

Unfolding in real-time, Oedipus for Kids! turns the audience into attendees of the latest performance of the Fuzzy Duck Theatre Company, a three-person troupe dedicated to performing the classics for children. Having had success with previous offerings such as Old MacDonald’s Animal Farm and Titus Andronicus Bakes A Cake, company founder Alistair has decided that the next logical step is tackling Sophocles' Oedipus Rex. But all is not as pleasant as it seems with the Fuzzy Ducks… When Catalina learns that her business partner has bought her share in the Fuzzy Ducks only to sell it to “Beanz! Coffee for Kids” for ten times net value, Catalina decides to sabotage the production. What was once a misguided (albeit educational) theatrical experience swiftly spirals into a Charybdis-like whirlpool of suck, and Catalina's revenge leads to a darkly comic denouement.
