THE SECRET

IN THE WINGS

by Mary Zimmerman

The Secret in the Wings adapts two European folk tales and four lesser-known fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm to comment on the power of storytelling and how it can teach enduring lessons about life and love. The play asks its audience to consider what is hidden in the wings of our collected consciousness. We are encouraged to question  and sometimes not trust our own eyes, particularly because some things are not always what they appear to be. The intermingling of these stories builds a landscape of mystery and curiosity that supports Friedrich Schiller's illustration that "deeper meaning lies in fairy tales  told in my childhood years than in the truth that we are taught by life."
