The author doesn't claim it happened exactly this way; he has just taken five real life characters and some basic biographical facts and supposed what it was like for Orville and Wilbur growing up in the dysfunctional Wright family. Flight takes place in Dayton, Ohio, and at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in the early 1900s. Not a documentary, the play explores the lives of the Wright family in in warm and comic theatrical terms.
