That summer you scared yourself. That summer you woke up to desire. That summer you tasted freedom. You remember, and so does the storyteller of WILD HORSES. She remembers stealing liquor with her best friends, escaping her bedroom in the middle of the night, feeling the boy she loves reach across her body, borrowing cars without permission and making the pact with her best friends to break into a horse ranch and set the beautiful animals free. She remembers being thirteen, and she’s going to take the audience on the ride of her life. A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere, Allison Gregory’s WILD HORSES takes on the pathos and hubris of teenage years, the struggle for identity, independence, and authenticity, and the desire to find one's place in a complicated world.
Starring Jennifer Coy Jennings. Directed by Rudy Ramirez. Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon. Lighting Design by Patrick Anthony. Sound Design by Valerie Johnson. Stage Management by Tamara L. Farley. Photography by Errich Petersen.
Wild Horses is funded in part by VORTEX Repertory Company, by the National New Play Network, by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
