In contemporary Rome, two teenage girls embark on a transgressive journey exploring the power of their own sexuality. As school life overlaps with piano bars and post-modern dandies, they must decide how far they’re willing to go.
In The Woods (Nel Bosco) was awarded the 2018 Premio Riccione Production Prize. It will be presented at Rome’s National Theatre in January 2020.
In The Woods is written by Carlotta Corradi, translated by Edward Fortes and directed by Lily Wolff.
