In a Dark Dark Wood
“And some people say, that when a person loses their imagination
and forgets how to love - well that's how monsters are born."
Pippa and her little brother Mo live in a caravan on the edge of the woods. The family is poor but rich in imagination. When Pippa runs away after a birthday party upset, her brother follows her deep into the Woods. There they discover a hidden seaside, a ‘magic’ ice-cream truck and new parents too good to be true. But when the children grow homesick, they’ll need all their wits to escape their bird-brained captors and find their way home.
Based on the much loved 'Hansel and Gretel' by the Brothers Grimm, In a Dark Dark Wood is a nimble two-hander, combining storytelling, puppetry and play with bucket-loads of rich imagination.
In a Dark Dark Wood was commissioned by Barking Gecko Theatre Company.
The play opens in Perth, Australia in September 2016. Tickets available here.
