About the event
When a small girl’s parents leave her for the evening with an ogre neighbor (he has a TAIL!), she is horrified by expectation. Curiosity takes over, though, as he brings out a book of lesser-known fairy tales and begins to spin his web.
What follows is a fragmented and swirling series of stories filled with wit, magic and foreboding. From Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman, comes a tale at once tense and enchanting. The dark mystery of The Secret in the Wings (told through image, movement, and ensemble) explores myth, identity, and the idea that what we fear most is what most needs our love.
