After six years in London, Gil returns to the family flat in New York in order to help his younger brother Nils, a ballet dancer, get back on his feet after a long illness.
Gil who has a passion for holistic treatments immediately puts his brother on a demanding health regime. Nils complies at first, but progressively Gil’s ambivalent attitude gives rise to doubts and questioning. Why is Gil coming back after all these years? For all the warm welcomes and fond memories of their childhood, does something more sinister lurk beneath?
With depth, tenderness and humour, Little Wing explores the matrix of brotherhood, intimacy and ingrained role playing.
This premiere of a new work by playwright Juliette Quenin is the inaugural production of Five Minutes before the Miracle.
