What makes a great tragedy? High hopes? Hard luck? Harrowing, inevitable fate? Gale Theatre Co. set out to explore the secrets of tragedy and, along the way, made a play about it. Part hero’s journey and part never ending stair case, Wail asks the question, how do we bare our humanity—humanely?

When a young woman arrives in an unfamiliar and strange town, she can’t remember where she came from or how she got there. Time passes, seasons change, and she assumes a new life. As she learns more about the outside world, she also slowly discovers the truth of her past.

W.K. is a play about love. Driven by movement, W.K. follows a 7- year romance from beginning to end. Filled with swing dancing, karaoke, sex, revenge, and lots of kissing, it asks the question: how does your first love change you and can you ever return to the way you were before?
