Take a Walk in the Wilderness

On March 21-25, Pace Performing Arts students take on Eugene O’Neill’s Ah, Wilderness!, a coming-of-age play about small-town life and big time love.

Fourth of July 1906. Richard Miller is a 16-year-old, Oscar Wilde-reading romantic madly in love with Muriel, the girl next door.  Muriel’s father won’t have any of it and brings a forced letter from Muriel ending their relationship. Distraught, Richard drowns his sorrows in alcohol at a local bar with a prostitute. The next day, Richard awaits his father’s punishment and Muriel’s return to him.
