Matthew Maguire Returns to NYC's Wild Project With His Wild Man in Rome Solo Show Nov. 14
14 Nov 2012
Obie Award-winning actor and director Matthew Maguire returns to The Wild Project in his new solo show, Wild Man in Rome, for a two-week engagement beginning Nov. 14 in NYC.
Presented by Creation Production Company, Wild Man in Rome — a follow-up to Maguire's Wild Man, which premiered at The Wild Project in 2010 — continues through Nov. 24.
Written and performed Maguire, Wild Man in Rome features direction by Elizabeth Margid and lighting design by Chad McArver.
In Maguire's first show, Wild Man, he grappled with mortality as he explored the wildest moments of his life and told true stories of runaway horses, smuggling watermelons and cheating death. Wild Man in Rome, according to Creation Production Company, includes "fresh stories collected in Rome over four years. Whereas Wild Man was entirely autobiographical, Wild Man in Rome will weave fact with fable. Wild Man in Rome asks: Where is our wild side and how can we unleash it?"
Following its run at The Wild Project, Wild Man in Rome will play L.A's Son of Semele Ensemble beginning Nov. 29.
The Wild Project is located at 195 East 3rd Street. For tickets, call (212) 352-3101 or click here. For more information, visit CreationProduction.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
