The time has come to put some stories straight. I’ve waited long enough.
There have been a lot of rumours about me: ‘bad mother’, ‘runaway, wayward daughter’, ‘junkie wife’. There have been even more rumours about Dion. A whole industry sprung up after his death; articles, books, websites - dissecting his talent, fuelling his legend and betraying his beliefs.
None of them can explain Dion: Was he a myth? - Or merely a man? Everyone seems to have a ‘true story’ about him. But whose truth is it?
It certainly wasn't his.
Now it’s time to reveal Dion’s Life ... and mine.
Ariadne has had an eventful life.
Brought up on the beautiful island of Crete, along with her three siblings; the acclaimed Andro, the condemned Aster and the conniving Phaedra, Ariadne longs for freedom from their tyrannical father, King Minos.
The arrival of Theseus, Prince of Athens, offers her an opportunity to escape, which leads her to the love of her life, Dionysus, the misunderstood singer of the alternative band, Libertia.
Behind the endless press attention surrounding this beautiful grunge-rock god, who is worshipped by young fans, Ariadne discovers a vulnerable, troubled and talented young musician, who craves his estranged family’s acceptance. However, the manipulation and misunderstanding of others thwart Dion’s desire to use his god-given gifts to make the world happy. Ariadne is forced to watch as tragedy unfolds.
