Ah Wilderness is a Pulitzer Prize story by a great American dramatist, Eugene O'Neill, and is a comedy of American family life and the confusions of youth, its heroics and heartbreaks.

The American playwright presented his comedy to Guild Theater audiences on Broadway in 1933 and it was only a few short years later that the radio adaptation was aired to audiences across America and the world.

The story takes you back to turn-of-the-century America on Independence Day.

Set in 'the good old days' this is a gentle comedy telling the story of Richard Miller who is at that age where a boy becomes a man and as a result sees life through rather comically romanticized eyes.
