Notices

Even though Born To Be Wild is a reading, there will be some movement involved, and most definitely interaction between each other. 
There is some doubling possible in the casting of this performance.
Clyde and Seth will sing in the show. 
There is some language and several adult situations in the show. 
 All cast should prepare for some movement throughout the piece.

Notes

Everyone sees their family as dysfunctional and The Hemingways are no different.  The story follows the last days of one summer, when Hemingway's Wild Side, the local pet shop, faces bankruptcy, while Clyde Owen, a world famous pop icon seduces Seth into homosexuality, Margaret questions what to do with her unborn baby, and Gloria lifts the veil on the dark past that is cowering in the corner of the crimson curtains. Will it all end happily ever after, one thing's for sure, It's bound to be one WILD ride.
