Wild Abandon

Posted on Fri, Aug 29, 2008 at 12:25 PM

Well, I hate to weigh in too early, but I think I may actually have seen the 2008 Fringe Festival hit on opening night. Award-winning playwright Daniel MacIvor’s weird and wonderful “Wild Abandon” got a standing ovation from the good-sized crowd, and it was well deserved. This one-man show stars Kyle Gillis, an outstanding actor who is perfect as the adorably charming and disturbingly disturbed protagonist. And who else but MacIvor could meld such seemingly discordant scenes about cuckoos, suicide, dance styles and the deeper meaning of the word “cum” into a play that speaks to universal fears of abandonment? “Wild Abandon” is a wonderful example of what happens when a talented actor is married with a brilliant play.
