Ariadne’s Thread: The Adventures of Theseus and the Minotaur
In this modern twist on the myth, Ariadne feels like she hasn’t lived up to her title of “Princess” until she manages to protect the life of her half-brother, the Minotaur. Follow Theseus on his quest to find his family — an adventure that is filled with danger, humor, and a heartwarming reaffirmation of the value of family.
Set sail with Odysseus as he fights cyclops, sirens and Gods on his journey home to Ithaca. In an adaptation that focuses on both Penelope’s long wait and Odysseus’ ten-year voyage at sea, experience Homer’s epic tale of adventure, fate, and dignity in the face of unyielding obstacles.
Betrayals, sacrifices, ghosts — a heap of bodies litter this unforgettable tale of the day after the Trojan War ends. In Euripides’ rarely-produced revenge tragedy, Queen Hecuba and the women of Troy have survived, but the impact of war lingers. Translated by the impeccable Kenneth McLeish.
