AH, WILDERNESS!by Eugene O’Neill, directed by Carol Charniga
February 15, 16, 17, 2013 (Fri.-Sun.)
O’Neill’s unabashedly romantic valentine to the whimsical Miller clan of turn-of-the-century seaside Connecticut, chronicles the coming of age of their 17-year-old-son Richard. The young man experiences the heady rush of desire, rebellion and dreams of glories to come, as the family celebrates the July 4th holiday. O’Neill described Ah, Wilderness! as “wishing out loud,” some suggest for the youth he’d like to have had. Full of humor, glorious language and the foibles of a wonderful family, this play is a rare treat to be savored.
