Taking a musical approach to Earth Day, Peter Ryan’s Wings is a quirky, offbeat lesson on interdependence and survival. Loosely based on Aristophanes’ The Birds, the play follows two men who find refuge in a mythical bird paradise, but soon learn they cannot shake their earthbound problems. Ryan says there’s something for everyone in the uplifting story: “The show’s about flight and mankind’s urge to soar.”

Friday 4/29 and Saturday 4/30. $10, times vary. Friday at Ix Art Park, 522 Second St., and Saturday at Fry’s Spring Beach Club, 2512 Jefferson Park Ave. 249-2803.
