Greetings from the Icarus Theatre Collective!
 
Much to report these days.  We've got a new website, a new company structure, and best of all, a brand new show for you to come to!  It's been in development for seven years and well worth the wait.
 
Some important information on emails is below, so read on!  VERY important: please add icarustheatre.co.uk to your contacts since future mailings will come from there.

"perhaps merely quiet"
a staged reading of a new play by Sabrina Chapadjiev
directed by Max Lewendel

Welcome to the world of Savannah: Female, 19, Bi-polar I Disorder.
Most Recent Episode: Hypomanic.

Savannah enters a psychiatric ward in search of quiet from the voices of a mad mad world.  Instead, she finds herself in an ordered chaos where doctors seem more bizarre than patients.  When the newest psychiatrist at the hospital begins to treat Savannah, both struggle to fit into a world where credentials and a cold diagnosis overshadow the importance of personality and genuine human contact.

perhaps merely quiet defines the betrayal, sacrifice, and helping hands five women lend each other to walk a fine line of 'self' within a web of mental illness.
