Mary Zimmerman brings to the theatrical transaction a vibrant imagination and an expansive curiosity as she continues to meld the worlds of playwright and director. She is fascinated with ancient stories and oral traditions, and strives to bring such tales to light through her work.
For The Secret in the Wings, Zimmerman explores six somewhat unfamiliar fairy tales, framed by elements of Beauty and the Beast. Except for one, the stories are told as fragmented units, with the hope that if the audience gets lost, they will feel a sense of childlike wonder.
