The University of Notre Dame’s Department of Film, Television and Theatre (FTT) will open its 2005-06 theater season with Arthur Kopit’s “Wings” Oct. 4 to Oct. 8 (Tuesday to Saturday) at 7:30p.m. and Oct. 9 at 2:30p.m. in the Decio Mainstage Theatre of Notre Dame’s Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts.

Admission is $12 for the general public, $10 for senior citizens and $8 for students. Tickets are available at the performing arts center box office or by calling 574-631-2800 or visiting http://performingarts.nd.edu on the Web.

FTT professor Mark Pilkinton directs the play, which was originally written in 1976 as a radio play for National Public Radio. It tells the story of an elderly woman who suffers a stroke, which impairs her ability to speak. The play utilizes sounds and language to portray the character’s internal and external experiences, including her younger days as an airplane pilot and wing-walker.
