Myth of the Ostrich

Complex comedy

Review by Norah Pendergast

Perhaps the word ‘crisis’ should have more positive connotations, at least within a personal context. Directed by Islander, Charlotte Gowdy, Myth of the Ostrich, playfully illustrates the dysfunction caused by avoiding threatening realities.
