Going Wild in Hawaii

July 31, 2018

Going Wild, my new Trump-era play, is one of six plays selected for Aloha Theatre's 25th Original Play Festival in Hawaii.The play will receive a staged reading at the historic theater in Kainaliu, home of the Aloha Performing Arts Company, on August 16.

Going Wild tells the story of small-town librarian Meredith Stafford who decides to replace her mole-infested lawn with a “natural” landscape. In doing so, she runs afoul of a local lawn ordinance. Incensed, Meredith challenges the ordinance in court. It’s the unwitting start to a bizarre journey that shakes her faith in America as a bastion of freedom, democracy and the rule of law.
