What’s it about?
Wild & Precious is a theatrical memoir celebrating the life of Steve Cadwell, a gay man who grew up in rural Vermont and now lives with his husband and their son outside of Boston. From the moment the curtain goes up until the final bow the audience is riveted on Cadwell’s tale: you’ll cherish the little boy playing with dolls; anguish over rejection by his first boyfriend; and suffer through a nervous breakdown locked-up in the state mental hospital. Stonewall, disco, AIDS, freedom to marry and more are put in a context that’s made real by Cadwell’s vulnerability, authenticity and integrity. This well-tuned roller coaster shoots its riders through tumults, joys, tears and celebration witnessing the gay experience over the past 60 years. Dare to be different!
Who’s it for?
Gay? Straight? Bi? Trans? Still trying to sort it out? You’ll feel right at home — as if you’re sitting in Steve Cadwell’s salon — during every moment of Wild & Precious. Cadwell’s story is delivered through the lens of a married gay psychotherapist in Boston who dedicates his practice to gay men. But his story is everyone’s story. It’s the story of love, of being marginalized, of letting it all hang out and of fighting for what’s right. Performances can be tailored for private showings, as a fundraiser for community and advocacy groups, college campuses and legit theaters. Bookings are now being taken for the 2014/15 season.
