About The Play

WHIMSY

Written by the 2023 Outpatient Collective

Once upon a time there was a world where joy grew on trees, bats slept right-side-up, and dreams floated down the stream next to the schools of sea stars. But when a Wandering Wizard and his hWhimsical Hat cross paths with the Wild and Willowy Witch of the Woods, something on the breeze shifts. Power and hWhimsy must come face to face, and the world will be forever changed. And through the disparate stories of this Witch, Wizard, Hat and Yours Truly (the Narrator), the air itself seems to beg the question; What Happens If Magic Separates You?
