A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings

What to do about an angel who has fallen to earth? This thrilling piece of theatrical magic for young audiences and adults is adapted from the short story of the same name by Gabriel García Márquez. With gripping music, charming puppetry, live video projection, and a bunch of belly laughs, this fable leaps to life in all its wonderful weirdness and heartfelt emotion. If you loved our presentation of The Bookbinder in 2019, we’re sure you’ll enjoy The Old Man with Enormous Wings.
