THE WONDER

A WORLD PREMIERE

An American Midwestern Ghost Story by Maggie Lou Rader

No feeling is more powerless than parenting a child with an untreatable illness. Or more painful than the eventuality of saying goodbye. So if an allegedly supernatural occurrence could ease the grief and offer hope, would you accept it? Inspired by the first reported case of spirit possession in America, this 2021 Eugene O'Neill National Playwrights Conference honoree explores the emotions faced by two Illinois families, and the enigmatic events that would keep their daughters' memories alive.
