“Why you always got to dig things up?”
A cabin deep in the woods.
A lost boy buried in the snow.

The Woods sees Robert Alan Evans return to the Royal Court with this new play directed by Lucy Morrison. Lucy’s previous work for the Royal Court includes Plaques & Tangles, Live Lunch, Who Cares, and Pests.
