Ariadne's Thread, The Adventures of Theseus and the Minotaur

Ariadne's Thread, The Adventures of Theseus and the Minotaur

by Judith White

Theseus is a young man on an adventure. As he makes his way to Athens to meet his father he must fight bandits, carnivorous pigs, and travel the underworld.

He offers himself as tribute to rid the land of the murderous minotaur. But the story isn’t as simple as it seems. King Minos’ daughter Ariadne is willing to help, but only if Theseus promises not to kill the minotaur. How will Theseus get out of the labyrinth alive?

A fantastic modern version of the Theseus and the Minotaur myth complete with an active chorus. Bring Greek mythology to life!
