A Great Wilderness

April 14 @ 8:00 pm

Benchmark Theatre presents:

A Great Wilderness
By Samuel D. Hunter (regional premiere)
Directed by Marc Stith

After decades as the gentle-natured leader of a Christian retreat that endeavors to “cure” gay teens, Walt is packing up his life and preparing for a reluctant retirement. But when his final client quietly disappears into the remote Idaho wilderness, Walt discovers that his previously unwavering moral compass no longer points the way. With profound humanity and subtlety, A Great Wilderness navigates complex moral terrain, exploring the shifting motives and inconstant strength of our personal convictions.

“Deft and human handling of a controversial story.” – Vanguard Seattle
“[An] affecting drama that strengths its hold on you bit by unpredictable bit.” – Boston Globe
