Out of Hand Theater makes plays, games and more in Atlanta.

A new Atlanta Play performed in homes. Shaking the Wind. Written and performed by Minka Wiltz.

Shaking the Wind is the true story of a black girl growing up in Atlanta. Minka brings to life the many characters of her lonely and hilariously awkward coming of age story.

As she approaches puberty, young Minka models her dress and behavior on her fundamentalist, street preacher mother, while befriending the most affluent families in Atlanta as a student at the Westminster Schools. As she sits by her mother’s deathbed, she wrestles with the question, how do we forgive the wrongs inflicted on us by our closest loved ones?
