Williamstown Theatre Festival
A Great Wilderness
by Samuel D. Hunter

Watch a preview of the show.

At the edge of forced retirement and on the cusp of dementia, Walt--a man who has devoted his life to counseling teenage boys out of their homosexuality--decides to take on one last client at his fellowship camp in the Idaho wilderness. But when tragedy strikes and his life and mind begin to unravel, Walt is forced to confront some demons of his own. Berkshire-based Williamstown Theatre Festival, the 2002 Tony Award winner for Outstanding Regional Theater, brings this riveting new play by Samuel D. Hunter, whose script A Bright New Boise won the 2011 OBIE Playwriting Award, and who is currently a playwright-in-residence at Arena Stage.

In English. Recommended for mature audiences.

Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one intermission.
