    What is O.REX? O.REX is a brand new translation of Sophocles' Oedipus Rex, re-envisioned as a Greek-Noir Classic. (Greek-Noir: a mash-up of Greek Tragedy & American Film Noir.) Translated from the Original Greek by Classics' Scholar Mark Buchan and Gia Forakis, this production will take place in a nightclub. The audience will be seated at the nightclub tables, where Sophocles' Choral Odes become acts on the nightclub stage, as the entire performance space is transformed into a black & white world of 1940-50’s film noir with cinematic underscoring, video projection and the gripping drama of the ultimate murder mystery! What's Next for O.REX? With our new script in place, now IT'S TIME TO MAKE THE MUSIC! This August, GF&CO was invited to The Putney School in Putney Vermont, for a Residency with our Grammy-Award Winning Composer, Jeremy Mage, and the O.Rex creative team to begin work on the five jazz-ballad Choral Odes-Night Club Songs. Here is a SNEAK PEEK of the work we've done so far (Music: Jeremy Mage, Lyrics: Mark Buchan)! What is Your Role in O.REX? Your contributions will play an essential role in the REALIZATION OF THE MUSIC, bringing us one step closer to our Fall 2014 production of O.REX. Here is how your generous contributions will play out... $429 pays for composing, producing & recording of one Choral Ode-Nightclub Song $2,144 pays for producing & recording of all Choral Odes-Nightclub Songs $4,288 pays for composing, producing & recording of the Cinematic Underscore $6,432 pays for all of the above $12,432 pays for all of the above plus the Composer's Fee $Overfunding will not go to waste! Every extra penny will be applied to the production budget for the Fall 2014 Production Reaching Our Goal One Thought & One Action at a Time! GF&CO applies the principles of One-Thought-One-Action (content-driven thought and action) to everything we do. The smallest step, when taken with clear, incremental intention, brings us closer to all our goals and to the realization of this highly original theatrical experience. Become a part of our Greek-Noir Odyssey by giving to the creation of the music! Spread the word about this campaign. Every incremental step counts! With Joy & Song, Gia Forakis (Artistic Director of GF&CO, O.REX Co-Author and Stage Director)
