Read more audience feedback.
In Crete, in an impossible labyrinth, lives a fearsome and lonely beast with the head of a bull and the body of a man. Only his sister Ariadne cares for him, and she dreams of setting them both free from the rule of their selfish father, the King.
This playful, clever retelling of the well known Greek myth will be an action-packed treat from the writer of the Unicorn’s highly successful 2013 Christmas show, Cinderella: A Fairytale.
Minotaur was first performed at Bristol Old Vic in Feb 2014.

...a fantastic piece, and well worth a visit, no matter what age or level of classical awareness
It’s meaty stuff, and it’s not afraid of ambiguity or complexity.
...fascinating and well staged production - at times dark and foreboding, and at times full of humour but there is drama and tension throughout.
The minotaur has an unnerving presence...it sets the young audience squealing with disturbed delight
