Call us now to reserve your tickets for NOV 15, 2PM

The Secret in the Wings by Mary Zimmerman

From the fertile imagination of Tony award winner Mary Zimmerman, this stunning work adapts little-known classic fairy tales to weave a darkly beautiful new story. Beasts, beauties and other familiar and unfamiliar characters journey from close corners of childhood to distant basements of imagination.

Directed by Christine Mary Dunford, Lookingglass Theatre Company Ensemble member, and Director of UIC’s School of Theatre and Music.

Meet the cast and UIC faculty after the matinee performance.

Past years productions have included Willliam Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and As You Like It, Bruce Norris' Clybourne Park and Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye. The program includes a study guide sent to teachers, attendance at main stage theatre productions, and participating in post-show discussions and receptions with UIC Theatre faculty and students. In 2013-14 over 400 High School Students attended.
