Young Aurelia, age 14, can't wait to be an adult. And then she comes upon Seavus, a fairy, who claims he can grant her wish. Soon, whenever life throws her difficulties, she wishes for time to race by—but is it the magic of Seavus that is making life speed by, or is Aurelia herself responsible? A play about looking forward—and learning to love right where you are.
