Our Ouija board,
The games we played,
the shit we conjured,
& the dead dude we hate-fucked
Bec and Saph are hosting a ten year high school reunion dinner for the graduates of Second Swamp Secondary School. As the guests start to arrive, it becomes clear that it's more than a reunion. There's tension and inside jokes and lots of irresponsible drinking. Saph doesn't quite understand, because she was homeschooled, but she's a good sport and an even better host.
Something happened ten years ago...something scary. And now the Second Swamp Seven finally have to come to terms with that went down between the Crocodile and the Ouija Board in that abandoned pool a decade ago...
A reunion play about communal trauma, kinky sex, crocodiles, Kelly Rowland, circle jerks, celebrity ghost hunters, and all the shit that still haunts from about high school.
I graduated high school ten years ago and all of my first sexual experiences were clumsy, secret, coded escapades that happened deep in the woods in-between watching SAW marathons and blasting Lady Gaga's first album. Giving a blow-job during Saw IV while simultaneously lip synching "Poker Face"isn't ideal: it's weird and sloppy,
but also: kinda hot.
WOLFCRUSH is my play about all those strange, secret, sleepness teenaged-nights as a closeted gay Puerto Rican in the swampy backwoods of Disputanta, Virginia promising myself that if I didn't kiss him back: it wasn't gay. We all have a queer werewolf someplace inside us. Maybe a full-moon ignites your transformation or maybe it's a shirtless pic of Idris Elba. Whatever it is, don't tame your beast: werewolves can't be domesticated.

"...Walker stitches together samples from multiple genres into his rollicking, highly discursive quilt of a play. Echoes of teen slasher flicks, thick-as-gravy Southern Gothic pulp novels, and softcore porn vie for pride of place, but WOLFCRUSH reassures its audience and itself that there’s plenty of crazy to go around...I defy anyone to find a more fringe-worthy venture."
