Wild With Happy

Runs Mar 7Apr 6, 2025
By Colman Domingo

San Francisco Premiere

When the process of grieving his mother involves an overly enthusiastic funeral director, and a demanding Aunt Glo, there’s nowhere for Gil to turn but a wild grab-an-urn-and-go roadtrip to find his fairytale ending. From the mind of Colman Domingo comes a wondrous dramedy about the sometimes bizarre and often inexplicable bonds of family.
