The original script of Wild Thing was written in 1613 by Luis Vélez de Guevara, yet it confronts gender in a way that feels astonishingly of-the-moment. Gila, a peasant girl who calls herself a man, furiously rejects the rules set out for her, preferring the life of a fierce warrior outlaw over subjugation to a husband and society. Join us for this first-ever English-language production of an extraordinary and constantly surprising play that has everything from slapstick comedy to intense drama. 

By Luis Vélez de Guevara, translated by Harley Erdman 
Directed by Gina Kaufmann
