by Allison Gregory

It’s the 70’s, there’s music and make-outs and freedom is just out of reach. Wild Horsesis a savagely-funny play about a threshold summer that forever alters one adolescent girl, as portrayed by her grown-up self. Complex and timeless, this is a coming-of-age story for all generations. The pathos and hubris of teenage years, the struggle for identity, independence, and authenticity, and the desire to find her place in a complicated world — it all come rushing at us as she takes us on the ride of her life.
