WInds of Change
Winds of Change is a drama about a family transformed as wind power towers go up on a mountain ridge. Set in a town enmeshed in this hot controversy, their rural community undergoes monumental changes during construction of a large-scale utility project.
Written by Vermont playwright Lesley Becker, the play examines the impact on the lives of families living close by the wind towers, and the tension between competing values of community, climate change and the need for renewable energy, and protection of the environment.
Each character has hopes and dreams - the new neighboring wind power utility impacts their future in unimaginable ways.
Annette Smith, executive director of Vermonters for a Clean Environment describes the play as having "powerful insights into a changing landscape".
Performances are at 8:00 PM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 14th - 16th, and a Sunday matinee on February 17th at 2:00 PM, at Off Center for the Dramatic Arts in Burlington.
This production features Bob Carmody as the father, Emily Lyons as the daughter, Karen Geiger as the neighbor, Charles Yarwood as the son, Mary Scripps as the company representative, Jayden Choquette as the returning veteran and Johannes Garrett as the town board chair.
