Everyone knows the story of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun, but that is only a tiny snippet of what actually happened. In this magical adaptation, the story revolves around the father, Daedalus, and his mistakes that led to the birth of the young Minotaur, to his son’s tragic death, to the suicide of the king’s daughter. His choices affected everyone around him like a rippling tide that only ends in destruction. As all the characters fight to avoid their fate, one question permeates throughout. Can people really change or all endings sketched in stone? Written by Kendall Uyeji, directed by Michael Schwartz.
