The Minotaur

by Anna Ziegler, directed by Amber Bjork
October 7 – 22, 2017

Everyone deserves a story.

Performing at The Crane Theater
Once again, Ariadne waits for Theseus to show up and kill her monstrous brother. In every telling, he heroically slays the Minotaur. But does it always have to happen that way? The Minotaur certainly hopes not. Fighting the outcome of your own myth is no easy feat but it might just be possible for a true hero.
