The Wild Guys is a play about four men who, for very different reasons, wind up on a “men’s awareness weekend” in the bush. Andy, Robin, Randall and Stewart — guys for whom “hunting and gathering” means looking for the produce section at the grocery store — bring all their neuroses, hang-ups, blind spots and bald spots to a men’s weekend in which none of them has much genuine faith. What they discover, however, is that each of them is profoundly needy in some way and once the well-fortified doors to their psyches have been battered down, there’s no controlling what will happen next!
Cast Requirements – we are looking for middle-aged men with an acting range of mid-40’s to late 50’s
- Stewart: Stewart Gyver, the manager of a grocery store chain in a northern Ontario town
- Andy: Andy Graham, an executive at the grocery chain store’s head office in the city and a member of a men’s group
- Randall: Randall Harrison, a very fit and polished lawyer in the city firm that handles the grocery store’s account
- Robin: Robin Cunningham, a member of the same men’s group that Andy Graham belongs to
