By Thomas Hammond, Music and Lyrics by Ron Barnett
“What is Real? When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.”
The power of play and childhood fantasy, the pure light of unconditional love – these timeless forces illuminate Virginia Rep on Tour's faithful rendering of Margery Williams’ tale of friendship and the passing of time. A lovely score and detailed period costumes will transport you back to the beginning of the last century. There you will experience a particular innocence and wisdom that have much to say to our present culture of instant gratification and disposable friends.
