The Wrinkle is a fifth-dimensional phenomenon leading to a fold in the fabric of space and time. In Madeleine L’Engle’s famed ground-breaking tale, three children go on an adventure exploring black and white dimensions of good and evil accompanied by benign supernatural beings. Searching for Meg’s vanished scientist father, a sinister force, thriving on planets about which they’ve never heard, threatens the children and all humankind. Fortunately, Meg’s five-year-old genius brother Charles can do and see things to leap beyond the bounds of normal human limitations. L’Engle’s deep religious faith underpins her writing. And she explored new literary territory by putting a girl at the core of a science-fiction tale for children. Playwright John Glore, with many scripts of his own, adapted the book for the stage. The Rose points out that this uninterrupted hour’s experience is best for children above the age of seven.
