The Filigree Theatre presents Lifted
The Filigree Theatre presents the world premiere of Lifted, a modern meditation on the tale of Icarus by playwright Charlie Thurston.
The play is part absurdist family drama, part imaginative theatrical fantasia. In an environmentally ravaged near-future, birds have returned from their recent extinction to carry a teenage boy off into the sky. Is it an act of salvation or a declaration of war? As the avian abduction sends ripples through the city, then the country, then the world, his twin brother, father, and girlfriend have to turn to each other for meaning.
