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.
