In a destitute village near the Caribbean Sea, a young brother and sister discover a creature that has plummeted from the sky. Believing the mysterious stranger is a fallen angel who needs their help, the siblings overcome their fear and set off to help their new friend get back into the sky. But as soon as the adults find out about the inexplicable being, they devise ways to use him for monetary gain, as a sideshow freak that people from around the world would pay to see. Adapted from Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez's 1955 short story, A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings is a magical and touching fable that exposes man's desperation and greed while shining a light on the purity of children's faith, curiosity, imagination, and, ultimately, friendship. Presented with the PlayGround Theatre's spectacular costumes, vivid sound effects, and dazzling visuals, the play is a wonder for the entire family.
