WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
At the edge of forced retirement, and on the cusp of dementia, a man who's devoted his life to counseling teenage boys out of their homosexuality has decided to take on one last client. But when tragedy strikes and his life and mind begin to unravel, he is forced to confront some demons of his own. As directed by Braden Abraham, this world premiere tackles complex and important issues with gentle clarity and enormous humanity. Commissioned by Seattle Rep and performed in workshop at our 2013 New Play Festival, A Great Wilderness introduces playwright Samuel D. Hunter's distinctive voice to Seattle audiences.
