Wilder is a rambunctious and willful child with energy to spare. Like his hero Max from Where The Wild Things Are, Wilder struggles with minding authority and navigating issues of anger. He is certain life would have been better if rather than a boy, he had instead been born a “wild animal of the jungle.” So he has decided to be one. Wilder’s Mom does her best to guide her imaginative and headstrong son, but she struggles with the difficulties of being a single mother; having a “wild animal of the jungle” for a son only adds to the pressures. Join Parker Arts for this original children’s play by local actor and director, Christopher Willard.
