Wild With Happy

Pittsburgh in the Round: The situation playwright Colman Domingo presents us with in WILD WITH HAPPY is rather straightforward. Gil, a struggling black actor, has left New York City to deal with the death of his eccentric mother Adelaide.

The show opens with Gil reflecting on being raised by a struggling single mother and the time she took him to church when he was ten to hear Elder Bovane and “Get some Jesus”. He hasn’t been to church since!
