Production notes: 
Neville completed his English translation (that is actually a free adaptation) in 1560, when he was an undergraduate at Trinity College, in Cambridge. His text was probably used for a production of Oedipus and staged (together with the Hecuba) (ID 4083) in 1559-60 in Cambridge. Smith reports that the production had cost 13 shillings 4 pence (p. 205). Neville’s Oedipus was first printed in 1563, then collected nearly twenty years later by Thomas Newton in his famous "Seneca, his Tenne Tragedies Translated into Englysh" (1581).
