"Richly rewarding, right down to its marrow."
-San Francisco Chronicle

Nominated for the 2008 Glickman Prize for Best New Play in the Bay Area, Bone to Pick is a re-telling of the myth of Ariadne, who is reconfigured as Ria the Waitress, working in a military base diner for three thousand years. After years of foreign occupation and at the end of a war- torn world, Ria enters the labyrinth again to confront her part in the murder of her half- brother, the Minotaur. Paige Rogers reprises this tour de force role in a performance that the San Francisco Chronicle dubbed "riveting."

Diadem is a newly commissioned companion piece, a romantic retelling of the earlier parts of Ariadne's myth, when she was young and in love. Together, these two original works tell the complete story of Ariadne's epic romance.

Bone to Pick was commissioned by The Cutting Ball Theater and Magic Theatre / Z Space New Works Initiative
