Comic rendition of an Ancient Greek myth as a one-act play for kids. Several locations, but no set requirements.
King Minos of Crete is a man ahead of his time, seeing his island as a successful holiday destination. The resident monster, the terrifying half-man, half bull Minotaur and a labyrinth to keep it in are key elements in his plan. [So a major tour to see the Minotaur? No? Suit yourselves...] Brilliant designer Daedalus, assisted by his son Icarus, is enlisted to construct the labyrinth but when Daedalus finds that King Minos is inclined to imprison him too, he realises that his next design must be for a means of escape. Icarus is less than enthusiastic about the method chosen. Perhaps he sees a Greek tragedy on the cards.
