classic humor of suicide and murder

I don't know whose idea was to make tragedies funny but I'm kind of glad they did. the narration here is only one person which is not nearly as fun when the narration is done really well and everyone gets really into it. I think I might should have purchased the Oedipus stories also and just listen to all three.

Overall okay performance

Initially unimpressed with narration but with continued listening it improved and was overall a decent listen. Had to listen to this play a few times to really appreciate it.
