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

★★★★ 'intelligent, creative and un-patronising' The Stage
★★★★ 'the show to see' London Theatre 1

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.

Please note: contains flashing lights, strobe lighting and haze.
