By Eugene O'Neill
Directed by Margaret Ingraham
Eugene O'Neill takes a rare foray into the "light side" with this comedy. Ah, Wilderness!, set at the turn of the century, deals with small town America on the 4th of July. O'Neill won four Pulitzer Prizes for Drama and a Nobel Prize for Literature during his 30-year career. His real-life struggles with tuberculosis and a dysfunctional family were often subjects for his darker dramas. However, he put all that aside when he wrote Ah, Wilderness! O'Neill fantasizes about growing up in a wholesome, innocent family. Your theater cup will run over as you see the world through the eyes of 17-year-old Richard, as he comes of age in 1906.
Produced by Madison Theatre Guild in the Drury at the Esquire Theater.
