About

“The life of man awaits you, the light laughter and the misery in the same day, in the selfsame hour the trivial and the divine. You are to give it voice.”— Nascuntur Poetæ

Poets and peasants, a mermaid and Mozart flicker into vivid and fleeting life as worlds of wonder and mystery unfold in a dreamer’s twilight.  Come experience the young Thornton Wilder at play as imaginary beasts take a rare look into the early works of one of this country’s most beloved authors.
