Into the Woods
Author(s): Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by James Lapine
Company: Scenario Two and Theatre Royal Bath Productions
A baker and his wife desperately yearn to have a child but have been cursed by the Witch who lives next door, thanks to the actions of the baker’s father. The only way to lift the curse is to find four obscures yet strangely familiar items: a cow as white as milk, a slipper as pure as gold, a cape as red as blood and a hair as yellow as corn.
With only three nights to find them before the curse becomes irreversible, the couple head deep into the mysterious nearby woods only to discover more about themselves than they might ever have expected…
Co-directed by Terry Gilliam and Leah Hausman.
