July’s selection for the ongoing Off The Page series of free staged readings at Sierra Madre Playhouse is Wings by Arthur Kopit. Emily Stilson, seventy years old and a celebrated former aviatrix and stunt pilot has a stroke, loses speech, herself, her place in time. Memories flood in as she attempts to relearn the basic functions of everyday life. Aided by a dedicated young therapist, Emily’s flights of memory and emotion create an evocative portrait of the ability of the human spirit to renew and survive. Directed by Christian Lebano. Written by Arthur Kopit.
