When this production was presented, it was tailored as a fundraiser for a non-profit theatre company. The audience sat for the first act (this piece) and then went into the woods where they saw vignettes to tell act two. No lines or acting in the woods, only visual cues. Support is available from the original production team should you wish to present this production.
