In the latest instalment of the wonderful season of Tasmania theatre, an exciting performance called Labyrinth will take to the stage over four days in September.
The CentrStage production is based loosely on the story of the Minotaur – the Greek mythological creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man. He was thought to live in the elaborate Cretan Labyrinth, which was built for King Minos.
Written by Stella Kent and directed by Peter Hammond, the play tells the story of a new college principal who is determined – like Theseus – to encourage a cultural focus in the people he is responsible for.
However, by handing over control of the college students he unwittingly allows other forces of chaos and brutality to consume them.
Labyrinth appears at the Annex Theatre at Inveresk Railyards in Launceston from September 7 to 10.
Tickets are $25 for adults, $18 for concessions and $10 for children and can be purchased through Theatre North, with all shows beginning at 19:00.
In a sign of its burgeoning arts scene and significant appeal for production companies, the island state has been drawing in more high-quality theatre than ever before in recent times.
