Wild offers a live theatrical coup for a world turned upside down. Three people play cat-and-mouse games in a Moscow hotel room. One is Edward Snowden, the American whistleblower whose Wikileaks dump has just transformed him into a man without a state, and the others are shady characters with offered promises of protection. Can they be trusted?
With echoes of Kafka, the play asks if individual identity is still even a thing in our perilously uncertain world. But it asks that unsettling question with humor and theatrical bravado. And Quantum’s production, built in a strange, safe place, will make you feel like you’re at the theater again.

How do I sign up?
Reserve a virtual ticket using either the “Tickets” link at the top of this page, or click here. Please reserve a number of tickets equal to the number of people you expect will watch with you – this will aid us in accurately tracking attendance.
What will I see each night?
That depends which night you tune in! Every night we are broadcasting 1/2 of the play live at 8:00 PM, with a recording of the first half preceding the broadcast on Friday and Sunday. It’s your choice whether to watch the play live on two successive nights, enjoy the whole experience, or view a recording at your convenience.
How do I get into the stream?
Wild will be broadcast over YouTube, but we are using our ticketing system PatronManager to provide access to the private stream.
When you finish reserving your e-ticket you will get an order confirmation. Contained in this email is a link to the landing page where you can access nightly links to the show stream and recordings of past performances. You will also receive an automated pre-show email on the evening of your show with a link to the performance.
Click any of these links to join the stream.
I missed the live broadcast. How do I watch the recording?
Exactly the same way you watch the live broadcast. The links provided for the nightly livestream will automatically become links to recording after the broadcast concludes.
Recordings will be available until the end of our final performance on Sunday night, at which point we must take them down.
Help! I have another question.
We would be happy to help. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 412.362.1713.
