Thebes has fallen under a terrible curse.
"Creon, go to the God, Apollo and seek advice of how to lift the curse!"
"In order to lift the curse you must find who mudered King Laius at a crossroad."
"How do we lift the curse on Thebes?!"
"You must find who killed King Lauis at a crossroad many years ago in order to rid Thebes of this curse!"
"Then I will find who did it. Bring the blind prophet, Teiresias, to me so I can find the murderer."
"Teiresias, who murdered King Lauis at a crossroads many years ago?"
"I cannot tell you for it will only bring pain."
"You must tell me so I can rid Thebes of this curse."
