This accession consists of records documenting a short play, titled "Twelve Seconds that Changed the World," that was performed live in the exhibition Wright Brothers and the Invention of the Aerial Age. The play, performed several times per day on Wednesdays and Saturdays, consisted of three five-minute scenes that offered a personal, intimate perspective of Wilbur and Orville Wright and allowed visitors to share some of the excitement felt in the artistic community following the first flight. It ran from October 2003 through March 2005. Materials include planning documents, correspondence, scripts, statistics, budgets, actor biographies, images, contracts, intellectual property information, newspapers used as props, and related materials.
