'Your darkness will destroy you but it won’t hurt me'
Charlene Kelly’s debut play draws on archetypes found in fairy tale and nature. Her living realm of the woods is an invitation to experience a story through the eyes of intellectual disability.
A Prince is tired of being controlled by his father, heartbroken he runs into the woods. Cold and alone he calls out for help. A girl, also lost, is charmed into leaving a safe and familiar path. Hunted by darkness their way out is uncertain.
