How to Fix a Broken Wing
How to Fix a Broken Wing is a high-spirited and hopeful new play which explores how we might find beauty in imperfection and build resilience in the face of change.
A quiet woman lives on the edge of a once great city. It's stormy season, so the wind and rain is wild. But she knows it'll pass, and then she'll get to watch the birds migrating across the sky. Life goes on. But then. A young girl appears on her doorstep. A stranger. She just stands there. She doesn’t say anything.
You can’t stay out there. You’ll get soaked. Come in.
Both of them have secrets. Both of them have fears and suspicions about the other. But as the clouds rise up like waves and the lightning flashes like giant bird wings, the girl steps into the woman’s house and closes the door. She presents her with a mysterious gift prepared in secret and it triggers a series of events that leads to a startling and dramatic discovery.

INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS
We prefer the children to enjoy the performance without prior knowledge of the story but the information pack below helps teachers to link to classroom plans after the show. As this is brand new production, full resources will be available in 2018.
For two short films to show your class to prepare your class for a theatre experience in the school hall, one for you and one to show them, please see the RESOURCES section of our website.
