AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Ollie and the Minotaur", tells the story of three women in their late twenties as they go away on their annual summer holiday together. What appears to be a typical few days away, begins with fun and reminiscing but ends in a brutal and dark examination of their friendship. The confession of one betrayal begins a revelation of secrets as the three women piece together the true story of their shared history. The play takes the the myth of the ferocious Minotaur in a cave and transposes it into contemporary Australia. ' Source:www.fortyfivedownstairs.com (Sighted 01/05/2008).
