One of literature’s favorite heroines, Meg Murry, the fierce and fiery heroine of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel A Wrinkle in Time, is back to join forces with her brother Charles Wallace and friend Calvin for a fantastical adventure. When an extraterrestrial creature recruits the trio to fight an evil force, they’ll travel across a galaxy—and through the cells of a human body—to stop it. This thrilling sci-fi story reveals that love and kindness are the best antidotes to evil.
Recommended for professional TYA theaters, touring groups. Originally commissioned and produced by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (2021). This theatrical re-telling with vivid visuals, puppetry, and creatively suggested imaginary locations is perfect for professional theaters that can maximize the opportunities for puppetry, or even for small touring groups who need to tell the story with less performers (5), or with puppetry and props (that are able to travel).
"One of Madeleine L'Engle's biggest talents is connecting the cosmic to the personal, and this synthesis between the vast and intimate is captured beautifully in Jacqueline Goldfinger's adaptation. ...A Wind in the Door makes big themes tangible and accessible without talking down to its audience." --Broadway World
