The following post is an informal analysis of the character Wild One in the play Raising Cane: A Family Portrait by Stephen Cedars, as it relates to my specific interpretation of the character. It is also to disprove that the character in question is a "wild child", that term referring to a child that is raised from a very young age with little to no human contact and is then assimilated into the society of a species of animal.
What’s a nice girl like you doing with a nasty play like this?
Funny how often this question comes up.
In rehearsal the other day, I had a moment of “wow, is this what I thought I’d be doing when I grew up?” as I watched an actor help another actor slam his head into the ground (all perfectly safe, of course) and debate how quickly the head slams should be repeated.
