In The Secret in the Wings, MacArthur Fellowship and Tony Award-winning playwright and director Mary Zimmerman unleash her minimalist theatrical wizardry with her adaptation of four traditional fairy tales. Framed within a story of a child listening to bedtime stories read by her frightening babysitter, Zimmerman takes us back to the time when uncensored fairy tales were more about fear and enchantment than about the characters themselves. As adults, we can steel ourselves when evil shows its face, prowling for the innocent, but Zimmerman's devotion to the original text and innate sense of stage awe make us happy to be back in that wide-eyed time of childhood when the line between reality and fantasy is delightfully, and sometimes alarmingly, fluid.

Rated PG-13
