Synopsis: Recorded in 1997, Jobeth Williams directs Erika Schickel's play Wild America, a meditation on mating, monogamy, and motherhood - from a Darwinist point of view. Inspired by the work of anthropologists and evolutionary psychologists, Schickel explores the inevitability of human sexual behavior, concluding that our emotions and sexual conduct are programmed through evolution. She postulates that understanding this can free us from some of the angst we feel about choosing our mates (and cheating on them) and bearing children. Using the tropes of documentary and her own life story, Schickel stitches together a crazy quilt of dream and experience, satire and longing, taking us from the dawn of humanity to the birth of her own daughter. Erika Schickel is a canary in the coal mine of modern day American womanhood.
From the Inside Flap: From hot marital sex to Julia Child's own recipe for the perfect French kiss, Wild Amerika takes us on a hilarious romp through mating, marriage and monogamy. Using the tropes of documentary and her own life story, Schickel stitches together a crazy quilt of dreams and experience, taking us from the dawn of humanity to the birth of her own daughter.

Directed by JoBeth Williams. Recorded before a live audience at the DoubleTree Suites, Santa Monica in July of 1997.
