When Wendell discovers that his wife Tilda and their beloved tree have vanished from the backyard, he must venture into the nearby forest to bring them home. Confronted with shifting landscapes, unusual creatures, and a mysterious lurking presence, Wendell soon learns that the key to finding Tilda is to first unlock the mystery of The Wilds. Charming and profoundly touching, this wordless award-winning show features WONDERHEADS’ signature masks, whimsical puppetry, and enchanting music, and moves its audiences to both laughter and tears.

WONDERHEADS’ work has been described as living animation, and the improbably astonishing way in which their masks come to life must be seen to be believed. Through their expert use of mask performance and puppetry, they weave stories that are equal parts funny and heartwarming, and they have been delighting audiences around the globe since 2009 with their unique theatrical stories. Don’t miss this spellbinding show that the CBC describes as “Captivating and magical” and the Winnipeg Free Press as “Nothing short of exceptional.”

The Wilds runs 60 minutes with no intermission. Audience advisory: Theatrical fog and haze, and occasional flashing lights. The Wilds lightly touches on themes of grief, loss, and love. Recommended for a general audience (ages 8-adult).
