SEEKING ANGEL WINGS for Theatre Production The director for the AU Theatre dept. fall show of Marisol is looking for angel wings.... In the play, the angels revolt and go to war with what they call a senile God who has abandoned humanity. So the angels shed their wings of peace and love and adorn their wings of war. With that in mind, the director would like to fill the scenography gallery in Miller with YOUR interpretation of angel wings. Looking for all mediums, the more diversity the better! Open to all Alfred Unv students.
