The Minotaur

By Anna Ziegler
Tom Mitchell, director

A present-day version of a classic Greek myth, The Minotaur examines the tensions between family, love, and individual choice. Ariadne must choose between her half-brother, the Minotaur, and a handsome hero, Theseus. The path she takes has resonated throughout Western literary tradition. With refreshing originality and wit, The Minotaur explores how we break out of history in order to shape new stories for ourselves.

Join us on Sunday, October 30 for The Minotaur Concert Event: Into the Labyrinth: Ariadne & Theseus.

Talkback on Thursday, November 3

Join us for an exciting opportunity for direct audience engagement with our stage productions through a free talkback following The Minotaur on Thursday, November 3. Talkbacks allow audience members to discuss the performance, play, design, and themes with artists and scholars in an informal give-and-take, question-and-answer format. Each talkback is hosted by a faculty member from the Department of Theatre at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

There will be no late seating for this performance.

This performance will last approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
