Wilderness 2019 Recruitment

As part of our August production, The Runaway Company will be staging “Wilderness” by Seth Bockley and Anne Hamburger. Set in a outdoor therapy programme for troubled youth, “Wilderness” tells and documents the stories of youths struggling with the demons of depression, anxiety, self-harm, bullying and addiction amongst others.

We are trying something new with Wilderness. While previous productions of The Runaway Company have taken the form of revue-style productions and an original musical, Wilderness would be our first attempt in creating music theatre: where we harness the potential of music, in an otherwise straight play (non-musical plays), as another avenue for telling stories. The music will be classically driven, raw and experimental.

As a company committed to telling stories through both music and theatre, “Wilderness” will mark another milestone for the company as we stage a music theatre piece for the first time. If you are interested in joining us through this production, whether as a cast member or a production committee member, find out more below!
