The Growing Stage, The Children's Theatre
of New Jersey, located in the Historic Palace Theatre on Route 183 in Netcong, New Jersey is proud to present the East Coast Premiere of WITH TWO WINGS from tonight, February 1st through February 24th with performances Friday evenings at 7:30 PM, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 4:00 PM.
The work was created by Anne Negri and WITH TWO WINGS is the winner of our 2011-2012 New Play Reading Festival. Also, the play was a recipient of the 2009 Playwrighting Award from the Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences playwrighting competition. It was further developed at Write Now (formerly The Bonderman Playwrighting for Youth), a national playwrighting competition and symposium presented by Indiana Repertory Theatre
and Childsplay in Arizona. WITH TWO WINGS is under the direction of Stephen L. Fredericks, The Growing Stage's Executive Director.
WITH TWO WINGS takes place in a world where people are born with wings and the ability to fly. The story centers around a young boy named Lyf, who lives a hidden existence in the woods with his parents. One day, a pair of twins, Meta and Taur, stumble upon Lyf's isolated home. Meta gives Lyf secret flying lessons and Taur begins to ask questions about Lyf's mysterious family. When Lyf discovers his father's top-secret invention, he must confront his parents and face a reality that will either tear them apart or bring them closer together. WITH TWO WINGS is a story of trust, taking risks, forgiveness, sensitivity about our differences and most importantly about taking ownership of one's own story.
