The White Stag Quadrilogy On The Rocks Theatre Company

About This Show

In the land of impossible plots, Jerry Wolfert became a genre unto himself: war vet turned occult priest turned self-published novelist turned pariah. With his ex-wife and a hodgepodge of other old pals in supporting roles, surprises arise when the most hated man in Hollywood reinvents himself as a filmmaker.

Known for bringing lovable idiots to the stage, this notorious company tells the untold, fictional story behind the making of Wolfert’s never-before-seen, 4-part cinematic triumph The White Stag Quadrilogy. Watch as the dark prince of cinema and celebrity moves into the ranks of the mythic.
