Robert O'Hara will direct the Oct. 9-Nov. 11 premiere of the four-actor play, which according to the Public, "explores the surreal, bizarre, and outrageous comedy that lies in dealing with death and healing.

Domingo (Scottsboro Boys, Passing Strange) will portray Gil, with Jackson (Jamaica) as Terry, Maurice McRae ("24," "NYPD Blue") as Mo and Washington (Ths Scottsboro Boys) as Adelaide/Aunt Glo.

Wild With Happy will officially open Oct. 23.
