Adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Nilo Cruz, A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings introduces children ages 8 and older to the world of magical realism with a story plucked from the imagination of Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez. Cruz’s adaptation begins the day siblings Fefé and Momó discover a man—elderly and winged—has landed in their impoverished seaside village, coaxed there after the moon takes a mesmerizing midnight bike ride through the city streets. Though the pair decides the mysterious man is an angel in need, the town’s grownups find themselves torn between worship and exploitation as they transform him into a freak show to bring wealth to their struggling hamlet.
Chiefly inspired by South Florida’s broad spectrum of cultural diversity, The PlayGround Theatre educates and entertains audiences with colorful classical and contemporary performances honed by a creative team of experienced writers, designers, and choreographers. Their expansive stage billets grandiose sets while a modest seating capacity allows for a more intimate experience or marathon session of musical chairs.
