The Wind People, with book, lyrics, and music by Heather Megill is a 75-minute acapella musical set in dystopian America. Show themes include internment, war, oppression, liberation, social justice, intergenerational community, and hope.

Eight villagers live in an encampment in the American Southwest 100 years in the future during a century-long drought. Living in makeshift shanties and off of weekly rations, they believe their work in the nearby factory assists in the war effort. When the electronic speaker in the center of their village malfunctions, a man from outside the encampment enters their world, bringing with him confusion, the truth, and prompting the unraveling of a prophecy that will bring hope and liberation to the oppressed “wind people.”

"The Wind People" is recommended for ages 10+ due to language, intense themes, and quiet moments in which little kids may get fidgety.
