Playwright Suzan Zeder has already proven that children's theater doesn't have to be childish. Her memorable Mother Hicks, which Raleigh Little Theatre produced in 2002, explored the lives of three social outcasts in a Mississippi River valley during the Great Depression. This present-day tale premiered during last year's Women's Voices Theater Festival in Washington, D.C. In it, Beatrice is troubled by upcoming changes as she's about to turn ten. Obsessed with aviation, she spends her free time in a treehouse turned cockpit in her backyard. She has reasons; the freedom and weightlessness of flight counters her father's overprotection and her mom's growing concerns about her weight. Then, one day, Beatrice finds someone waiting for her in her plane: an ally who may or may not be Amelia Earhart. Artistic director Patrick Torres directs. —Byron Woods
