Profile of Sophocles
Sophocles was also an actor and performed in many of his early works… Reliable sources for the dates of his plays are scarce, other than for Oedipus at Colonus, produced in 401 B.C…. Because they involve themes associated with Thebes, the plays Antigone, Oedipus Tyrannus and Oedipus at Colonus are sometimes referred to as the “Theban plays” or “Theban trilogy” (though scholars are quick to point out the plays are not, in fact, a trilogy).
