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.

Join Minka as she comes to terms with her mother's fundamentalist, street preacher ideals, her family's idiosyncrasies, and her many trials and triumphs, with humor, tears and song.
