Somewhere in Nebraska, a little girl named B is dreaming of flight. She can remember a time when she had wings and could take to the skies, but now those memories are fading and she is desperate to get into the air one more time before she turns 10. After a thunderstorm, a mysterious figure appears in her treehouse: a timeless woman who moves like a bird and speaks only in strange squawks. B realizes who the woman is--her hero, Amelia Earhart. Slowly, B helps the woman (called A) remember who she is, and together they rediscover flight, metaphorically and literally. A beautiful and visionary play for all ages, When She Had Wings inspires the audience to remember their dreams and embrace their imaginations so that they too may take flight.
