Wreck concerns two men stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash near the Bahamas. They must work together to survive. However, their inner demons creep to the surface, creating a force so strong their surviving the elements becomes the least of their worries. “I wanted this play to consist of only two men on stage for a two-hour time period dealing with a rollercoaster of emotions,” says Wiczer. “Wreck is about survival, loss, finding yourself, trust in others, and the destruction of the human soul.
