Chicago Dramaworks is thrilled to announce the recent publication of Wild by Crystal Skillman. The play made its professional premiere in Chicago in 2012 followed by a critically-acclaimed run in New York City. The play has been published as an Acting Edition, available on Amazon.com.
Wild is described as follows:
One night’s infidelity sets a chain of events into motion that causes Peter and Bobby’s life to implode. Set on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago, Wild is a play about relationships and the destructive and healing powers of love. Wild is published alongside Crystal Skillman’s powerful one-act play Welcome to the Now Now from After Orlando, an International Theatre response to the Pulse Nightclub Shooting.
