Play Description:
Jack London’s novella tells the story of Buck, a princely St. Bernard mix who is kidnapped and sold into a dogsled team during the Klondike gold rush of 1897. To survive, Buck taps into long-dormant instincts as his epic adventures play out across the sublime backdrop of the Arctic wilderness. Confronted with this cruel and beautiful place, Buck unmasks a primal power that draws him inexorably closer to his ancestors: the wolf. But at what cost? Ian Frank’s new adaptation uses music, movement, and beautiful masks to bring Jack London’s classic story to life.

Free parking is available in the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center’s parking lot. 
Schlitz Audubon and its parking lot are accessible to individuals with disabilities.
