Icarus by Katrin Lange, translated by Purni Morell, at the Unicorn Theatre

Jan 26 - March 10th 2019

His family is falling apart and he feels powerless to help. His father is far away across the sea, forced to work for the tyrannical King Minos, and is unable to return.

So Icarus makes a decision: it’s time to take control of their fate. But what can one boy do against injustice? Can he save his family or will he crash and burn?

With epic storytelling and spectacular stagecraft, Icarus is a modern, fun and adventure-filled retelling of the ancient myth.
