Will Two Bickering Brothers Save Themselves from Imprisonment? Find Out at Dreams of Icarus

Hear a new version of the classic Icarus myth at Outcry Theatre this Sunday! On December 29th, Outcry Theatre will present the world premiere of Dreams of Icarus, a devised work created by the actors and director based on the classic Greek myth of Icarus and Daedalus.

Bickering brothers Icarus, a storyteller who dreams of soaring amongst the stars, and Daedalus, the most famous inventor of all time, find themselves locked away in the top of a high tower by King Minos of Crete. As they bemoan their fate, they remember the events that led them there – an unforgivable crime, a treacherous maze with a fearsome minotaur, and haunting dreams of falling and betrayal.

Tensions rise between the brothers as their imprisonment wears on, and it seems their very lives are at stake. To escape certain death, Daedalus must create the one invention he thought he never could – a pair of working wings. But what will happen when Icarus is finally given a chance to live out his dreams, spread his wings, and fly?

The mission of Outcry Theatre is to draw youth and young adults to the theatre as both audience and participants. Outcry Theatre utilizes bold artistic vision, highly physical staging, and an energetic and visceral performance style. With rigorous rehearsals, tenacious attention to detail, and unwavering dedication to excellence, Outcry Theatre focuses on developing stellar performances and exceptional storytelling.

Watch in awe as a myth as old as time itself comes alive at Outcry Theatre! Tickets for Dreams of Icarus range from $15 to $25 and are available for purchase at www.outcrytheatre.com.
