The Secret in the Wings

The Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) presents Mary Zimmerman’s drama The Secret in the Wings Sept. 30 through Oct. 9, in the Philbin Studio Theatre, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

The Secret in the Wings weaves together a number of short fairy tales through different means of storytelling. Purchase tickets online or by call the Ticket Office, 631-2800. Prices are $15, $12 faculty/staff/seniors, and $7 for all students. This show includes mature content.

Directed by Siiri Scott, FTT’s head of acting and directing, “The Secret in the Wings” weaves together a number of short fairy tales through different means of storytelling. Nimala Nataraj of SF Station says Zimmerman “presents a captivating rendition of lesser know European fairy tales that takes viewers on a hypnotic voyage into the murky underbelly of human impulses. Slicing up these stories and enmeshing them in a framework that quickly dissolves and makes the border between storyteller and tale indistinct, Zimmerman opts for an arrangement that makes the entire stage glow with prescience.”
