In their review, The New York Times describes the play as a “dark story of guilt,” that shows the “sometimes destructive force of love and how one mind may be irrevocably poisoned by another.” The story examines the strange and disturbing forms love can take and asks how you live with a monster that is your own flesh and blood.
Kidman founded Blossom with Per Sarri and the duo will produce the feature adaptation. Wilde will adapt the drama for the screen.
“Joe’s voice is so beautifully subversive,” Kidman said. “He’s exactly the kind of young writer Blossom is looking to support.”
Blossom is also in production on Big Little Lies, a high-profile HBO series based on the book by Liane Moriarty with Jean-Marc Vallee directing. Kidman will star with Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley.
Wilde is repped by Berlin Associates.
