Visit a world where teenagers come of age by getting their wings to fly high. Along the way they discover that wings can also hurt others. One teen chooses to fight tradition and find a new way to fly. This is a story of youth pushing back on the way it’s always been and fighting for a new, better path to the sky. A world premiere play by Matt Falduto, filled with humor, pathos, and the modern teenage experience.
