Following his critically lauded production of Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh, Robert Falls takes on the legendary playwright’s sweeping, heartfelt salute to youthful indiscretion and small town life. For the shy and scholarly Richard Miller, fireworks aren’t the only flames burning on Fourth of July — this 16-year-old has started going steady with his beautiful neighbor Muriel. Her father, however, disapproves of their relationship and forbids the young couple from seeing each other. Spurred by this obstacle, Richard embarks on an evening of unexpected rebellion. Ah, Wilderness! delightfully captures the bliss, torment and emotional confusion that accompanies first love.

This production is part of Goodman Theatre's 2016/2017 Season, featuring a line-up of nine works that embody the values, ambitions and quality synonymous with Goodman Theatre in honor of Robert Falls’ 30th anniversary as artistic director.
