The play presents a romantic sentimental tale of youthful indiscretion in a New England town on Independence Day, 1906. Richard is the adolescent son of the local newspaper publisher; forbidden to court the girl next door by her father, Richard rebels - via "forbidden" literature, a roadhouse and the local bar girl. Through the intercession of garrulous Uncle Sid, a forgiving mother and an understanding father, Richard's dilemmas are eventually (and whimsically) solved. If O'Neill's masterworks LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT and A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN are portraits of his family as they really were, AH, WILDERNESS depicts the family he wished he had.

An urban fantasy in which one young woman must fight for survival in a world turned upside down. This play about God, credit card debt, the apocalypse, and the hope for a brighter future is at times comical and entertaining, yet it also offers the audience a profound look at the best and worst of humanity. Winner of the 1993 Obie Award for playwriting. "Rivera's cruelty slanted world view...is fascinating." - NY Post. Rivera's play is angry, fearsome, fantastic, and poetically frenzied, without surrendering either its sanity or its mordant sense of humor," - Village Voice.

Constance Ledbelly, a young English literature professor from Queen's University, goes on a subconscious journey of self-discovery. Constance theorizes that Shakespeare's tragedies, Othello and Romeo and Juliet, were orginally comedies, and believes the ideas for the plays originate from the indecipherable Gustav Manscript.
