A Wrinkle in Time Will Transport Young Audiences

Through Time and Space


(San Diego, CA) – Based on the Newberry Award winning novel by Madeleine L’Engle and adapted for the stage by John Glore, A Wrinkle in Time is the story of Meg Murry, a young woman who is transported on an adventure through time and space to rescue her scientist father from the evil forces that hold him prisoner. With the help of brother and some celestial creatures, including the eccentric Mrs. Whatsit, the children travel by tesseract - a sort of "wrinkle" in space and time. Ultimately, Meg realizes that the only force that can counteract evil is love and eventually the family is reunited.


The production is directed by guest director, Meg Deboard. Since moving to San Diego, she has worked on Hollywood! and Blueprints to Freedom, at La Jolla Playhouse, and several projects at Cygnet Theatre. Disney is currently developing a film version of the novel, directed by Ava DuVernay (director of Selma).
