The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television, and Theatre (FTT) will present Mary Zimmerman’s drama The Secret in the Wings. Directed by FTT’s Head of Acting and Directing Siiri Scott, the performances are Friday,October 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, October 9 at 2:30 p.m., in the Philbin Studio Theatre of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.
The play weaves together a number of short fairy tales through different means of storytelling. Nimala Nataraj in SF Station says that Zimmerman “presents a captivating rendition of lesser know European fairy tales that takes viewers on a hypnotic voyage into the murky underbelly of human impulses. Slicing up these stories and enmeshing them in a framework that quickly dissolves and makes the border between storyteller and tale indistinct, Zimmerman opts for an arrangement that makes the entire stage glow with prescience.”
