About Ah, Wilderness! ACT Theatre October 14 to November 8, 2015
Running time: 2 hours and 25 minutes, plus a 15-minute intermission
“A sensitive tribute to young and middle-aged love and to a beautiful, bygone era."The Examiner, Washington, D.C.
Eugene O’Neill’s passionate coming-of-age classicis a tender portrait of a sensitive teenage poet whose experience of first love leads him into the raptures of romantic poetry and the pain of heartbreak. As the Miller clan prepare for their Fourth of July celebrations, their idealistic, literature-quoting 16-year-old son, Richard, is struggling with what it means to be young and in love. As Richard’s attempts to sow his wild oats intersect with small-town gossip, hilarious misunderstandings ensue. Full of the vibrant nostalgia of first love and other youthful discoveries, Ah, Wilderness! is a humorous portrait of a family’s attempts to stay united in the midst of growing pains, as well as “a valentine to hearty turn-of-the-twentieth-century American life” (Washington Post).
