Laughing Wild is a full-length drama by Christopher Durang. A provocative, inventive, and very funny study of the dangers and thrills of modern life in urban America. Unique in form, the play consists of two monologues one for each performer plus an hilarious playlet which brings the two together and explores more fully the converging dreams and themes set forth in their solo expositions. In the first section of the play, a Woman enters and embarks on an increasingly frenetic and funny monologue "Laughing Wild" of the deepest frustrations in her life.
In particular she is incensed by a man who prevented her from buying a can of tuna fish by standing in her way — and whom she attacked in a fit of pique.
In the second monologue "Seeking Wild" the Man appears, and while the subjects on which he expounds nuclear waste, the rigidity of the Catholic Church, particularly in sexual matters may be broader in context, he also dwells on an incident in a supermarket, when a strange woman hit him over the head in the tuna fish aisle.
For the third and last portion of the play "Dreaming Wild" the two protagonists meet at last and reenact the supermarket incident via six varying interpretations; tell us more fully of their overlapping dreams; and then launch into an explosively funny parody of a talk show. In the end the two find an accommodation of sorts as they come together at the Harmonic Convergence in Central Park — both still hoping to instill a sense of optimism and purpose in their lives, but both still skeptical that they will succeed in doing so.
This zany exploration of urban humanity is a fun, frenetic theatrical experience that will keep your audience laughing and leave them thinking. The play has become a favourite scene study vehicle in acting classes and workshops and is regularly performed in regional repertory, college, and community theatre productions.
