I'm a title
Nikki (Clare Latham)
In the summer of 2013, Kibo Productions led a workshop of a new play Wild with frequent collaborator, Crystal Skillman. The Brooklyn-based playwright had already had a development period of the play in Chicago the year before and was particularly keen to continue to continue refining the action of the piece. We spent two weeks developing the play with London-based actors. Following on from our successful rehearsed reading at the Southwark Playhouse in July 2013 and further workshopping by Sanguine Theatre in New York City, Wild received an full production run in 2014 (directed by Evan Caccioppoli). For more information on this production, please visit Sanguine's website.
Set on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago, Wild is a play about gender identity and the destructive and healing power of love. Skillman’s provocative text explores how infidelity sets into motion a chain of events that causes lovers Peter and Bobby’s life together to implode. That Peter slept with a woman is only the first surprise in this savagely funny and truthful examination of long-term love.
