A workshop-page for a new solo piece currently in development. Melding a contemporary family drama with the myth of Apollo the Sun God and Pytho the Dragon, the goatsinger tells the story of a man who, after decades of domestic abuse by his wife, finally stands up to her – only to discover how monstrously she will retaliate.
An exploration not just of character and family, but an examination of gender expectations from a fresh perspective.
