The Wheel

The Goucher College Center for Dance, Music, and Theatre is proud to present The Wheel by Zinnie Harris. The Wheel is a play about the trauma that war inflicts upon us, and it is especially concerned with the trauma inflicted on children.  The play presents the never-ending cycle of war that is a result of this unhealed trauma.  But the play also suggests that we can do better. That we may be able to alter the next cycle.

The story begins in rural Spain late in the 19th century where Beatriz is tasked with returning a banished soldier's daughter to him.  The audience follows the duo on a hundred year long journey across decades and nations, through the wars and conflicts of the 20th and 21st centuries. Each war and the individual scenes that take place within them have something to tell us about its corrupting effect on individuals, institutions, populations, and the environment.

The production will employ puppets, masks, ensemble-based movement, live original music, and magic! Some truths are better told in non-realistic ways.
