Tonight at 9 o'clock the Harvard Radio Workshop will present Yeats' prose translation of Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex" over the Crimson Network. F. O. Matthiessen, professor of History and Literature, and Allen Clark '18 have adapted the work for radio and assisted in its production.
The title role will be taken by George A. Plimpton '48, with Miss Evelyn Merson, Radcliffe '47, as Lucasta, Andrew Smith '48 as Creon, and Frederick F. Lamont '48 doing the vocal solo. Miss Merson appears through the courtesy of Gerald L. K. Maslon '98 and the Harvard Dramatic Club.
