  • Synopsis

    This play is based on a short story for children written in 1968. The story begins with a husband and wife, Pelayo and Elisenda, who find a very old man in their courtyard one stormy afternoon. Amazed, they gaze at the enormous wings attached to the body of the old man as he struggles to get up from the mud. Is he an angel, come to bring their sick newborn baby away with him, or a shipwrecked sailor?
