An original world-premiere show written by Joe Heaney.
Friendship is a powerful force. Life is unpredictable, and uncertainty can be frightening–but alongside friends, bravery is easier to muster and life more rewarding to navigate. Gil and the Wild One is a story told through the eyes and minds of two 11-year-old children as they work to maintain the adventure and playfulness of youth in the face of life-threatening illness. Rife with humor and poignancy, this World-Premiere play strives to remind us of the importance of companionship and the strength of imagination, while leaving us with the ever-important lesson that we do not need to live forever to matter–we just need to matter to somebody else.
