A lost boy buried in the snow.
A lone woman.
And her wolf.
This is the premise for Robert Alan Evans' new play The Woods, which premieres at the Royal Court's smaller Jerwood Theatre Upstairs. It's described by Royal Court artistic director as a 'darkly brooding and mesmerising play [that] opens up a complex and adventurous psychological world to us.'
Those that remember 2004's edgy Olivier-winning Girl in a Car With a Man will know Alan Evans as a writer with a knack for intensity and disquieting themes. But he also has and handful of awards and lots of experience of writing for younger audiences (Crumble’s Search for Christmas, West Yorkshire Playhouse; Peter Pan [adaptation] and The Sleeping Beauties,Sherman Cymru).
We look forward to seeing how these two strands merge in the murky fairytale backdrop of this latest play. Royal Court associate director Lucy Morrison (The Site Programme 2017; Plaques & Tangles) directs the world premiere.
