A young lawyer seeking self-definition, as well as ghosts, in today's fragmented, digital culture, finds challenges and direction in the 100-year-old history of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire.
The play explores the nature of memory, the subconscious mind, loss, and how we perceive and experience love. A young woman is stumbling through a labyrinth in an attempt to kill the Minotaur. She encounters various creatures from Greek mythology. Her only companion is a mute, stoic woman carrying a ball of twine.
