Janie Dee and George MacKay lead the cast of Eugene O’Neill’s warmest, most delightful play Ah, Wilderness!, an authentic portrait of a Connecticut childhood.

With moonlit beaches, firecrackers, booze and a powerfully dark undertow, Ah, Wilderness! follows teenager Richard Miller as he navigates young love in his idyllic home town over Independence Day weekend.

A staple in the US but rarely seen in the UK, O’Neill’s prelude to A Long Day’s Journey Into Night is an essential part of the great American playwright’s work.

The production is directed by Natalie Abrahami, whose recent credits at the Young Vic include the Juliet Stevenson-led Happy Days.
