Ah! Wilderness  

Ah! Wilderness $27.26 ex GST
$29.99 inc GST
Ah! Wilderness, first staged in 1933, is often seen as a bright and sunny reverse-image of the sombre Long Day's Journey into Night. Both are family plays set in the year just before the First World War. Both take place in a house clearly modelled on the O'Neill family home in New England. For O'Neill, Ah! Wilderness had ''the sweet charm of a dream of lost youth'; during his lifetime it was one of his most popular plays.
