Upcoming at WFT

Teen Performance Ensemble: Mockingbird

Caitlin, as an 11-year-old on the autism spectrum, used to rely on her older brother to help make sense of the world. When Devon was killed in a school shooting, she and her father must come to terms with their life alone and together. With the help of those around her, she learns how to get close to other people in spite of the “messiness” of emotions. We experience this play from Caitlin’s point of view. Adapted from the National Book Award winning novel by Kathryn Erskine.
 
Performances take place Friday, November 30 at 7pm and Saturday, December 1 at 3pm and 7pm.
