At the end of his life, an old man waits in his office for a stranger to arrive.Over the next few weeks, Teiresias will visit again, making his way across Hampstead Heath to relate the story of his life. As these two men sit together in front of a roaring fire, a remarkable tale unfolds.The story of Oedipus is probably the most influential of all the Greek myths, having furnished Freud's theory of psychoanalysis.Salley Vickers, a former psychoanalyst, says, 'It is an utterly contemporary drama about the ways we blind ourselves to reality and the price we pay for knowledge.'
