This remarkable play confirms the terror and hope in the human drama. Emily Stilson, a former aviatrix and stunt pilot, suffers a stroke in her seventies and is plunged into a disoriented world. Her mind has short-circuited her contact with the outside world. The doctors seem to be speaking gibberish and they can’t seem to understand her. Memories flood in between painful bouts to relearn aided by a dedicated therapist and others. More than a play about a stroke and the battle to recover, Wings is about a woman hauntingly suspended between life and death.
