What’s the latest news out of Oz? Trust Gregory Maguire, author of WICKED and its sequels, to let us know. In the fourth and final installment in THE WICKED YEARS series, the marvelous land of Oz is knotted with social unrest. The Emerald City is busy mounting an invasion of Munchkinland. Glinda is under house arrest. The Cowardly Lion is on the run from the law. And who shows up for a return visit but Dorothy. Yes. That Dorothy.

Amidst all this chaos, Elphaba’s granddaughter, the tiny green baby who’s born at the end of SON OF A WITCH, comes of age. OUT OF OZ follows the journey of the little girl, Rain, as she takes up her broom in an Oz wracked by war.
