Photo Flash: Oracle's BROOKLYN LABYRINTH, Now Playing
Due to an overwhelming audience response, Oracle Theatre Inc. will revive its production of BROOKLYN LABYRINTH for an extended run at the Chain Theater in Long Island City. BROOKLYN LABYRINTH premiered at the 2011 BoCoCa Arts Festival, and director Sara Wolkowitz returns to guide the production's cast through a two-week run beginning September 25.
BROOKLYN LABYRINTH presents three interwoven narratives that recount the Minotaur myth with a contemporary voice, and show us that monsters are rarely who we expect -- and that safety might not be outside the maze looking in, but the other way around. In DUMBO, by Kate Kertez, a powerful family uses unusual means to protect their reputation after one of their own does the unspeakable. Isaac Rathbone's BENSONHURST finds a working class family, unable to escape the choices from their past, who must survive amidst their own chaos and dysfunction. DAEDALUS AT THE NAVY YARDS by Sergei Burbank is a reworking of the Minotaur myth is told through the prism of Daedalus' point of view, with salty contemporary language, revealing that much of what is received as the truth of the story has, in fact, been distorted over time.
