Barely out of their teens, two enterprising, plucky bicycle mechanics team up with their studious sister to out-invent the world’s top innovators and achieve the timeless dream of human flight. From their tiny workshop in Dayton, Ohio, Orville and Wilbur Wright travel to the sandy dunes of North Carolina where they launch the first powered, sustained, and controlled flight of an airplane, changing the world forever. Join Virginia Repertory Theatre for this fun-filled story of great American innovators who helped make aeronautics and air travel what it is today. This is an inspirational story of determination as the Wright brothers never lost their heart nor their resolution, even through years of frustrating failure.
Let this theatrical performance make you feel as if you were there in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina along with the Wright brothers in December of 1903 as the world took flight for the very first time!
