SUPERB acting saved this dated and predictable family dramedy from complete yawner-hood. I suspect it was novel, even ground-breaking, in its day, but the characters seem stereotypical and the themes trite today.

This was a very sweet and enjoyable play. The main characters worked very well off of each other. Made for a relaxing night out.

Ah Wilderness was well acted. there were a lot of characters and all actors did a good job.t. The set was very good. The story is universal enough to be entertaining even though placed in 1906.

The group will do Long Days Journey into Night...continued
