American classics grad student Bud Schliemann is touring Greece in 1951 when he encounters a man who mistakenly reveals that he is the god Hermes, still alive centuries after people stopped believing in the Greek deities. Over the next 58 years, Bud encounters other gods living in disguise in the modern world, including the goddess Artemis with whom he falls in love. But the never-aging goddess eludes him for decades. A romantic comedy that travels through time, "Escaping the Labyrinth" is a fantasy with heart.
The cast features Jonah Boudreaux, J.P. DeCesari, Jaclyn Krottner, Cory Lang, Summer Kavalir, Edward Dufilho and Tom Sisney.
"Escaping the Labyrinth" is directed by Arden Allen Dufilho. Playwright Thomas Hischak will be in the audience on Saturday, March 25 and available for Q&A after the show.
