As a child, the world and everything in it appears to be so big. The summers seem endless and friendships feel immortal. Later in life, looking back on those experiences allows for new perspectives and the chance for catharsis.
The latest Williamsburg Players production, Ray Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine,” tackles such introspective themes with the writer’s trademark insight beginning Thursday through Nov. 18.
“I think he has a way of connecting with people,” said Director Brandon Lyles. He lauded the way Bradbury balances fantastical elements with themes and emotions that are decidedly grounded in reality. “He also makes you reflect on your life.”
