A Unicorn Production
Where the water ends and the sky begins, that's where I'll fly.

Here, where pleasant cottages
stand colourful in the friendly village and a gentle breeze wafts through the
air, children play in the square laughing and shouting – but Icarus, oldest son
of the builder Daedalus, does not play with them. He sits looking out over the
sea and thinks about his father.
His country is in turmoil. His family is falling apart. His father, far away across the sea, is forced to work for the tyrannical King Minos. What can one boy do against injustice? Will he save his family? Will he save his father? Will he save himself?
A bold, contemporary and playful take on the ancient myth.
