Kevin is fresh back from Canada and working with YPT Toronto. They are producing his new play 'Minotaur'.

 

In London, Polka Theatre simultaneously produced the same script.

 

And that production went on to play at Clwyd Theatr Cymru – the third co-producer.

 

 

Minotaur

 

 

"Dyer's blend of Greek Legend and modern narrative is a potent one, filled with action, the possibility of violence, adventure and some terrifically scary and funny characters" Jim Kaplan, Toronto Now

 

 

"This brilliantly commanding production successfully engages its young audience into complex adult themes such as those of war, revenge, courage, triumph and love. From the amazing sword fight to the entrance of the Minotaur himself, this play has excitement running through its veins! Enigmatic, engaging and dramatic, Minotaur is everything your older kids will love." - Curious Mum

 

 

"First Class… The 70-minute show, which is funny and inventive, has a Shakespearean dimension in its cycle of revenge and war-like gravitas, but is also "accessible" in a good way, showing how timeless themes colour and inform everyday actions." Michael Coveney, What's On Stage

 

"Polka Theatre is famous for creating world-class children's theatre, and they certainly don't disappoint with Minotaur. It's an action-packed, energised and beautifully designed production with a very talented cast.

Touching and exhilarating… Minotaur is a great show for children, but adults will find themselves just as entertained and moved by the story." - A Younger Theatre

 

"This robust and original piece is about confronting demons, whether that means living with the fear of what is happening to your dad in a 2014 war zone or facing the Minotaur in the murky but terrifying depths of Greek mythology." - The Stage

 

"It was a brilliantly innovative production which gave a classic Greek tragedy a contemporary twist… A fine example of a play one leaves feeling one's been educated but thoroughly entertained at the same time! One can't ask for more!" - Mumsnet

 

"Excellent interpretation of Greek myth with a believable cast and relatable dialogue for a young audience. A treat for any young person with a vivid imagination." - Everything Theatre

 

"A dark and intensely exciting adventure. Superbly directed by Michael Fentiman this is a production to entice and enthral both children and adults." - Remote Goat

 

 

 

The Toronto production picked up two 'Best' prizes and a shortlist for the script at the mighty 'Dora' Awards.
