A Black Comedy based on Greek Mythology
written by Duncan Pflaster
The legends of Greek mythology are brought back to life in Duncan Pflaster's two-act play, Amazing Dædalus. The fearsome Minotaur, who is not a monster, but an over-grown child named Andrew, is the unknowing center of a terrific play with a dark humorous slant. Andrew lives in the Labyrinth with Dædalus and Icarus, Dædalus's son. They also encounter Pasiphæ - the dethroned queen of Crete, and Andrew's Mother; Flutterby, Dædalus's scientific creation; and Theseus - A Hero, Son of the King of Athens, who has been sent into the Labyrinth with the heroic and noble task of killing the Minotaur. Amazing Dædalus is a delighful hommage to Ancient Greek Mythology as well as being an entertaining and provocative evening of theatre.
Amazing Dædalus is dedicated to Chandra Frank, Lissa Grossman, and Christopher Campbell.
