 One of literature's most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back -- braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, she's joining forces with Mrs Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O'Keefe and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1. Love CAN overcome evil and 2. There IS such a thing as a tesseract.

Perfect for schools and touring groups, this one-act adaptation of the beloved novel masterfully retells the story in a fresh and enduring way.

  • Good morning! I plan to produce this show in May. Do you require that we pay royalties before we announce auditions, or are we good to announce and just pay before performances? Thanks!

    Hello! Thanks for your interest in A Wrinkle in Time! We should get you set up with an order now, but you won't have to complete it with a payment until closer to your performances. You can either place your order online and select Purchase Order at check out, or you can email us your performance details (dates, etc) at and we will set it up for you. It's a very quick process and we are happy to send you the script for auditions in the meantime.
