About Bubba

Inspired by true events, Bubba opens in the Deep South and through the use of projections, the audience is taken on a journey into the good-ole-days of Huntsville, Alabama. The play then episodically moves from one year to another as the audience learns about Walker’s father, Joe Walker. A survivor of polio at age 2, the play explores his incarceration for embezzling $181,000 from the probate judge less than 9 months after marrying Walker’s mother, his need to be well-liked, and his discovery that the polio has returned. Walker’s strained relationship with his father is revealed through multiple characters: everything from a one-eyed womanizing party animal to Aunt B, the cancer-ridden, chain-smoking, keeper of secrets. A combination of song, dance, and heart wrenching honesty, the play examines his life and mysterious death.

What the critics say about The Pavilion:
“Wright has taken a simple premise and invested it with poetry, feeling and a distinctive voice…[He] manages a seamless blend of humor and pathos, philosophy and emotion…The script’s greatest strength lies in the genuineness of its feelings.” —Houston Chronicle.

“THE PAVILION offers a cheery existentialism—asking big questions in an easygoing, casual way…It boasts language that’s rich but not dense…It also honors your intellectual and emotional intelligence, eschewing easy answers. Bravo…” —Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune.

“Wright’s perceptive, gently witty writing…makes this familiar situation fresh and thoroughly involving.” —Philadelphia Inquirer.

“THE PAVILION, a gloriously theatrical treat by Craig Wright, turns the dramas of ordinary lives into the patchwork pattern of the universe.” —South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
