“The Wilde Girls” – A Comedy Adventure Unleashed
In this uproarious comedy, Lydia Pearl Pentz and Cali Scolari bring to life the pampered heiresses Tinsley and Mattie Wilde. Forced into a shocking reality in the untamed Depression-era forests of Washington State, the Wilde sisters embark on a journey that challenges their every notion of luxury and socialite life.

The plot unfolds as the comically conniving aunts, played by Susan Goforth and Heidi Kravitz, strip the sisters of their fortune, banishing them to the primitive wilderness. What follows is an extreme culture shock, with the clueless socialites facing survival challenges, a bear attack, and encounters with a hitman, Mr. Button, played by Matt Silver.
Through their absolute ineptitude, the Wilde sisters accidentally run over Mr. Button with his own Model-T car, thrusting them into the harsh reality of wilderness survival. Their only chance at survival lies in the hands of a reclusive mountain man, portrayed by stand-up comic and actor Teddy Smith.
