Performance Piece: A Winkle In Time
Adapted for the stage by Morgan Gould. Based on the classic Newbury Award winning children’s’ book by Madeleine L’Engle. It is a 50 minute one-act play. One of literature’s most fierce and 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. This play is based on one of the great works of literature for children. Besides being an exciting story, its messages of individuality, nonconformity, friendship and courage is great for anyone who has ever felt “different” or lonely or who have wrestled with loss. It celebrates the power of individuality and bravery and love.
A Wrinkle in Time is the story of Meg Murry, a high-school-aged girl who is transported on an adventure through time and space with her younger brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin O’Keefe to rescue her father, a gifted scientist, from the evil forces that hold him prisoner on another planet. At the beginning of the book, Meg is a homely, awkward, but loving girl, troubled by personal insecurities and her concern for her father, who has been missing for over a year. Together, the three battle the hate and evil with their own love and bravery.
