Last Weekend to Catch a Fallen Angel

A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings: a play for ages 8 and up. It's an adapatation of a Gabriel García Márquez short story, read it here.
The word delightful best describes it. Some of the actors wear masks as big as their torsos. The stage is dressed in orange, blue, black and gray. The simplicity of the stage design is part of its strength: your eyes and ears are forced to focus on the actors and their subtle but expressive body movements. Puppets add to the magical realism of another time and place.

The caveat: since it's a children's play, expect some mindless singing and dancing. But, it's kept to a minimum and most of the music ranges from catchy to tolerable.
