Head to Long Island City's The Chain Theatre for one of Oracle Theatre's Brooklyn Labyrinth performances! The theater company, known for its ability to educate audiences through theatrical experiences - tackling everything from mythology and historical events to literature.
Due to an overwhelming audience response, Oracle Theatre is back to revive its production of Brooklyn Labyrinth for an extended run at The Chain Theatre from Sept. 25 through Oct. 6. Brooklyn Labyrinth, which premiered at the 2011 BoCoCa Arts Festival, features three one-acts written by different playwrights. Each is based on the Minotaur Myth of Greek Lore, showing the audience that monsters are rarely who we expect. Each performance will also feature a different musician or band performing live music.
In Kate Kertez's "Dumbo," a powerful family uses unusual means to protect their reputation after one of their own does the unspeakable. "Bensonhurst" by Isaac Rathbone finds a working class family unable to escape their past as they struggle to survive amidst their own chaos and dysfunction. The third one-act, "Daedalus at the Navy Yards" by Sergei Burbank is a reworking of the Minotaur myth as told through Daedalus' point of view, revealing that much of the "truth" of the story has in fact been distorted over time.
Under the direction of Sara Wolkowitz, the cast of Brooklyn Labyrinth includes: Michael Criscuolo, Mikalena Kenyon, Aaron Matteson, Erin Salm, Collin Smith, and James T. Ware.
