WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Diadem and Bone to Pick are two different one-woman shows about the classical myth of Ariadne. Together, these two original works tell the complete story of Ariadne's epic romance. In the first (Diadem), the daughter of cruel tyrant, King Minos of Crete, betrays her family by helping Prince Theseus escape the Labyrinth where he has just slain her half-brother, the Minotaur, an enormous bull who has been devouring Athenian youth in ritual sacrifice. After fleeing her homeland to sail for Greece, Ariadne dreams of the return of her hero new husband while she waits alone on a deserted island. Back by popular demand, Cutting Ball Theater presents playwright Eugenie Chan's Bone to Pick, which presents Ariadne as a waitress in a diner, 3000 years into a post-apocalyptic world. This incendiary play was nominated for the 2008 Glickman Award for Best New Play, and received its World Premiere in Cutting Ball's 2007-08 season. The San Francisco Chronicle called the production "richly rewarding right down to its marrow," noting Paige Rogers' performance as "riveting;" Rogers will reprise her tour de force role for this re-staging.
