A Great Wilderness – WORLD PREMIERE
by Samuel D. Hunter
directed by Braden Abraham
January 17 – February 16, 2014
Performances at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM

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.

“Hunter writes sharp dialogue that can sting and evoke laughter, sometimes simultaneously.” Backstage
