Event Details

Voices of the South presents Reasons for Falling; a modern retelling of the Icarus myth. Set against a backdrop of lightning bugs, magnolias, and the Mississippi River, the lives of two music-obsessed teenagers are equally governed by Bible stories and the voices from a record player holding promises of a life outside their impossibly small town. Experiencing love, fear, betrayal, grief, and freedom, they build wings out of their favorite albums and dream of spinning the moon like a record.

This is the story of a boy determined to find his mother and to fly across the forbidden raging river.

This is the story of a prophetic girl named Isaiah who is losing her grasp on the boy that she loves.

This is the story of a father coming to terms with his own mistakes. 

This is the story of finding the freedom of flight while dealing with the grief after a fall.

This is the story of Icarus.
