Into the Woods

Straight after the phenomenal success of Urinetown. Theatre Ink now brings you James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale Into the Woods

An ambivalent Cinderella?

A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood? 

A Prince Charming with a roving eye? 

A Witch…who raps? 

When a Baker and his wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell. Swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). 

Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of The Princess Bride becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
