By Steven Dietz
Feb 24-25, 7:30 p.m. & Feb 26, 3 p.m. at Cary Arts Center
When the rulers of Nocturno decide they want the perfect daughter, Iris is taken away from her friends, her mother, and her Past Coat, which holds all her memories. With only a button as a clue and some odd new friends to help her, Iris searches for information about her past and for the simplest of all things: home. Production Guide
