The Bridge Initiative - Women in Theatre

Asterion by Liz Duffy Adams


We are SO thrilled to announce this FIRST reading of a brand new play! The Bridge Initiative is teaming up with Southwest Shakespeare, who is presenting Liz Duffy Adams' Or, September 2-17. Playwright Liz Duffy Adams will be in residence for the weekend, working on the text of Asterion, as well as attending events with SSC.

Synopsis: Asterion, the half-bull Minotaur of Greek legend, is trapped in the labyrinth his sister Ariadne designed, alone except for the ghosts of the young sacrifices he has devoured. Now Ariadne and her borrowed hero, Theseus, are coming to kill him – unless he kills them instead.

This is a free event, though $5 suggested donations are gladly accepted (we have some costs due to rights and scripts, though the actors and directors donate their time). Southwest Shakespeare Company's Studio, 55 E. Main Street, Mesa 85201 on Monday, September 5th, 7pm
