TYT Reads: When She Had Wings
May 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Join us on May 27th at Sandstone Cafe for a night of thought-provoking fun. There is no charge, but we are accepting donations. TYT Reads are one night only, script in hand performances.
When She Had Wings is a story told in sound, movement and words about 9-year-old B … just plain B, like the letter, like the grade, who is about to turn 10 and is not happy about that!
B knows, really knows, that before she could walk, she could fly. She is desperate to remember how before the dreaded birthday comes. In a summer thunderstorm, B’s treehouse is hit by lightning, and a mysterious stranger appears. She cannot speak except in strange squawks, single words and occasionally the letters “KHAQQ” … the call letters of the plane Amelia Earhart was flying when she disappeared and was never found. Is this creature a bird, an older woman escaped from a senior care unit or could she possibly be Amelia herself? Together they must help each other remember how to fly … literally and metaphorically.
TYT Reads performances are one night only, script in hand, full length shows. We use minimal props and set pieces. These performances give actors and directors an opportunity to participate in more shows and allows us to make connections with local business and community members. We are so excited to be able to offer more theatre to our patrons throughout the year.
Thank you to the Sandstone Cafe for hosting When She Had Wings!
