Oedipus at Colonus

Sure, we all know Oedipus Rex and Antigone, but what happens in Colonus again? Lots. I dipped into the Theban plays again while staying at a friend's place (thank goodness for friends with good bookshelves), and was delighted at how great this is.

It is not such a place as is famed in song and story, / But its name is great in the hearts of those that live here.
