Wild Horses

By Allison Gregory
Directed by Rudy Ramirez
Starring Jennifer Coy Jennings
Presented by The VORTEX

That summer you scared yourself. That summer you woke up to desire. That summer you tasted freedom. You remember, and so does the storyteller of WILD HORSES. She remembers stealing liquor with her best friends, escaping her bedroom in the middle of the night, feeling the boy she loves reach across her body, borrowing cars without permission and making the pact with her best friends to break into a horse ranch and set the beautiful animals free. She remembers being thirteen, and she’s going to take the audience on the ride of her life. A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere, Allison Gregory’s WILD HORSES takes on the pathos and hubris of teenage years, the struggle for identity, independence, and authenticity, and the desire to find one's place in a complicated world.
