Taking its title and premise from the mythical tale about a young man who flew too close to the sun, Convergence-Continuum's Icarus
updates an ancient lesson for modern audiences. In Edwin Sanchez's play, a woman and her brother, who's confined to a wheelchair, hang out at an abandoned beach house. The boy's dream is to swim to the sun; his sister and a pal encourage him. As in the Greek fable, everybody gets a little more than they bargained for. Icarus
runs through July 15 at the Liminis, 2438 Scranton Road. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Tickets are $9 and $12, available by calling 216-687-0074.
