Long Wharf Theatre will present When She Had Wings by Suzan Zeder, directed by artistic resident Nick Saldivar, as part of its Next Stage program on May 17th, May 21st, and May 22nd in Stage II at 7:00 PM.

Nine-year-old B is on a quest to fly, just like her hero Amelia Earhart. If she canít manage to lift off before her tenth birthday, which is just three days away, she will never be able to soar among the clouds. Help arrives just in the nick of time, when a mysterious woman from the sky tumbles into her tree house. Written by Suzan Zeder, one of the leading American playwrights for young and family audiences, When She Had Wings is an inspiring adventure story thatís appropriate for all ages.
