IcarusThe Unicorn stages a new take on the classic myth of the boy who dared to fly too near the sun, given a bold, contemporary interpretation aimed at eight to twelve year-olds. Icarus, oldest son of the builder Daedalus, doesn't play with the rest of the children, laughing and shouting in the village square. He sits looking out over the sea and thinks about his father. Cressida Brown directs a translation by Purni Morell,giving the myth a modern setting. We see King Minos building his kingdom while across the sea the country the Mother and the Brothers and Sisters live in has fallen off the edge of the world.
