Second Wind Productions, Inc. strives to create theatre that approaches contemporary social and political issues from the human perspective. We embrace the art of theatre as an instrument of personal catharsis and education. Theatre, at its finest, should be a mind-altering drug. It is a sock in the intellectual jaw, a searing burn across the heart, and the uninhibited laughter of a six-year-old. Theatre should make us examine our place in the world. The stage offers us a window into another house, another life, and when the lights go dark at the end of the night in that other house-- and rises in ours-- it should be our face we see reflected in the glass. In this mirror we can see how well we are living up to our values and how our lives affect others. In this mirror are planted the seeds of personal realization.
