Ah, Wilderness! is Eugene O'Neill's classic American comedy about the trials and tribulations of a young man and his loving family in a small Connecticut town on July 4, 1906. Richard, adolescent son of the local newspaper publisher, Nat Miller, has been forbidden to court his neighbor Muriel by the girl's father, due to his "radical ideas." Crestfallen, he then goes on a drinking spree and falls under the influence of Belle, whom he tries to impress but whose worldly ways frighten him. Can the young man be put on the right path by those around him?
