April 6 - April 22

at the Todd Wehr Theater Directions

In Milwaukee there lives a very special young man. One who sees more deeply than others. He sees so much that he loves in his city, but he also sees the fractures. And when this special boy begins to see icebergs floating into Milwaukee, he alone must find a way to help his community navigate through the dangerous waters. From internationally recognized playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer comes a contemporary folk tale inspired by conversations with our community. Suggested for families with young people ages 10 – 17+

Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, with input from the citizens of Milwaukee
This play was co-commissioned by First Stage in Milwaukee, WI and Filament Theatre in Chicago, IL
