August 13 - August 16 | Main Stage
2017 Season

By Lucy Thurber

Free and Family-Friendly!

In Once Upon a Time in the Berkshires, three children ask their grandmother to tell a story about a time long ago. She speaks of a world made of water, of star-crossed lovers, and of banshees. With original music and dance, warriors and magical creatures flood the stage as the tale unfolds. Directed by WTF Associate Artistic Director Laura Savia, this world premiere play by Obie Award winner Lucy Thurber asks what it really means to be a hero.

In the fall, winter, and spring, WTF conducts acting and playwriting workshops in Western Massachusetts. In the summer, more than eighty Berkshire area residents are featured on stage alongside professional actors in a free, family-friendly world premiere play. To learn more, click here.
