Happily Ever After has come and gone, and we’re still here.

In The Woods, damsels in distress find they can fight back, children can enter the stories they tell, and the shadows of giants flicker, but no one seems to know who is in charge. It’s difficult to know who is at fault. Caught in a fairy tale not of our making, we will try to rewrite this thing into something we can inhabit.

This musical production teams Stephen Sondheim’s beloved tale of fairy tale misadventure with an unexpected second half: a new original musical co-devised by Doorstep Youth Theatre and professional teaching artists from Doorstep Arts.
