Ikarus Play

Sunday, August 6th at 6 and 7 pm
Monday, August 7th at 7 and 8 pm

Dramahound Productions and Open Source Gallery are pleased to announce the premiere of a one-act play by Anne Phelan, The Ikarus Play. It will be performed Sunday, August 6th at 6 and 7 pm, and Monday, August 7th at 7 and 8 pm at Open Source Gallery, 306 17th Street (near Sixth Avenue), Park Slope. Admission is free.

The Ikarus Play is inspired by its current exhibition of video of work by Pakistani artist Sana Obaid. It features Kendra Mittermeyer as Deedee (Daedalus) and Emily Ann Banks as Kara (Ikarus). The director is Christie Marie Clark (Anne Phelan’s They All Know Me, Thespian Production Slam-a-Thon; Clown Love, Strawberry One-Act Festival; The Diner, Caravan Play Festival), with costume design by Cathy Small.

The Ikarus Play explores the classic myth as the family prepares for their flight to freedom from Crete, and ultimately its tragic ending. Originally, the play was to be performed with Obaid’s work on-site, but her visa was denied by the US., even though her visit was funded by the NEA. This production and a video representation of her work is going forward in spite of this turn of events.

This is Anne Phelan and Dramahound’s seventh production at Open Source; previous plays include Brooklyn Lighthouse; Deconstruction; Mi Tigre, My Lover; a reading of The Tiger Play; Olmsted in Autumn; and Venus von Merkel (directed by Christie Marie Clark).
