Obie, From Off-Broadway

Winner! 2004 Obie Award for Best American Play
Backstage and global politics unexpectedly collide during an amateur production of Oedipus. This powerful, timely play investigates the contemporary meaning and relevance of tragedy, launching a surprisingly funny, sharply pointed salvo directly at the heart of a generation.
"Anyone who has ever fallen in love with an actor-or, for that matter, with theater itself-will find a whole lot to cherish. Who could fail to be moved by the play's quiet insistence that Greek tragedy can still serve as a guidepost on the rough road of life, that theater still has the power to help us wrest meaning from suffering?" - Variety

"Full of interest, intelligence, amusement, and spine-chilling verity.'' - Village Voice

Small Tragedy was origianlly co-produced by the Hidden Theatre and The Playwright's Center June 6-29, 2003 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and was directed by Kip Fagan.

It was subsequently produced by Playwright's Horizons, Inc. New York City Off-Broadway on February 17, 2004 and was directed by Mark Wing-Davey.
