Ah, Wilderness

Revived in 1998 to acclaim at New York’s Lincoln Center, Ah, Wilderness! is a sharp departure from the gritty reality of the author’s renowned dramas. Taking place over the July Fourth weekend of 1906 in an idyllic Connecticut town, it offers a tender retrospective portrait of small town family values, teenage growing pains, and young love.
