What:
An aviatrix confronts her final stunt in the haunting chamber musical WINGS.  Just as she once plummeted dizzyingly through space, Emily is now falling through inner space as the result of a stroke. This extraordinary chamber musical takes us inside Emily’s mind as she gropes her way toward the cave of memory, away from the scrambled words and short-circuited thoughts that hold her captive.
