Meg Murry, the fierce and fiery heroine of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel A Wrinkle in Time, is back in this ground-breaking sequel! In A Wrinkle in Time, Meg, Calvin and Charles Wallace journeyed to outer space to save the universe, but in A Wind in the Door, their destination is inner space. With the assistance of the cherubim Proginoskes, the wizard teacher Blajeny and the unlikely hero of the elementary school principal Mr. Jenkins, Meg and Calvin struggle to save Charles Wallace's life by shrinking down to explore the universe between his cells and atoms. There they meet Sporos, a spoiled and arrogant microscopic creature, and confront the evil spreading across the universe. A breathtaking science fiction adventure story, A Wind in the Door speaks to the growing separations between US and THEM and how we can bridge the gap between people. Themes of anti-bullying and inclusion combine with cosmic adventure to make this a great choice for all ages, on stage and in the audience!
Perfect for schools and theaters with large ensembles, this quick-moving, adventure story lends itself to incorporating different styles of theater, from modern dance to circus elements. Minimal sets and quick scene changes make this a wonderful adaptation for companies on a shoestring budget.
