Time Mirrors • TYA

by Drew Chappell

Part of the Noorda Theatre Youth Plays

The town of Shoreville is situated close to a dam that was built in the past, 1918, when a war had just ended. In the present, the participants have ties to the past, and through the time Mirror found at the City Hall, they can see their descendants in the future. At first glance, these descendants appear to be living in a water environment. Slowly the truth is revealed — that some accident in the near present causes a catastrophe. Problem: the Time Mirrors only operate one-way from present to past, or from present to future. They allow no interaction between time periods, just observation of those times that are not the present. So, how can the future be saved? Premiered by the Noorda Theatre for Children and Youth in 2016. Order #3285.
