Adapted from Maurice Sendak's landmark children's book, Where the Wild Things Are is an intimate "guided play" experience for kids ages 3 to 7 and their adults. Max's bedroom is transformed into the various landscapes of his adventures, from a rolling ocean to a forest. The audience then becomes the Wild Things as each child is each given a mask and encouraged to "let the Wild Rumpus start!"
Through the power of food, faith, laughter, and each other, eight women find a way to carry on life at home while their husbands are away at an unnamed war. Inspired by the heightened lyricism of playwright and poet Federico García Lorca, this new play shows there is always a way—even through the hardest of times—to set our love free. Playwright Tony Meneses made his Two River debut last season with Guadalupe in the Guest Room.
