Bone To Pick
by Eugenie Chan
A postmodern adaptation of the myth of Ariadne: Prince Theseus promises to marry Ariadne if she helps him through the labyrinth to kill her half-brother, the Minotaur. Mission accomplished, he abandons her on a desert island, where for the last 3000 years, she’s been waiting tables in a diner at the end of a battle-worn world. What is the price of love and war?
Best of 2008, San Francisco Bay Guardian.
“It isn’t just the way the woman in the soiled diner waitress outfit says the words that makes them drip carnage and sexuality. It’s Eugenie Chan’s script… Bone is richly rewarding right down to its marrow.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
