A story told in sound, movement and words about 9-year-old B... Just plain B, like the letter, like the grade, who is about to turn 10 and is not happy about that! B knows, really knows, she can fly. She is desperate to remember how before the dreaded birthday comes.
In a summer thunderstorm, B's treehouse is hit by lightning, and a mysterious stranger appears. She cannot speak except in strange squawks, single words and occasionally the letters "KHAQQ" ...the call letters of the plane Amelia Earhart was flying when she disappeared and was never found.
Is this creature a bird, an older woman escaped from a senior care unit or could she possible be Amelia herself? Together they must help each other remember how to fly... literally and metaphorically.
WHAT THE CRITICS SAY
The work they create...is a vital part of an important national conversation, and there is nothing else like it on the Austin stage.
TILT Performance Company was a fun romp of a show with a lot of heart and a fantastic message that is great for audiences of all ages.
The Austin Chronicle
I settle in and quickly found myself in awe of the passion, dedication, and talent put forth by a wholly inspirational cast.
