Welcome to the Woods

by Alex van Warmerdam

directed by Erwin Maas

Welcome to the Woods 

The U.S. premiere of WELCOME TO THE WOODS (Welkom in het Bos), a provocative play where “Revolutionary Road” meets “Little Red Riding Hood.” After yet another marital crisis, Dora, accompanied by her friend Fannie, seeks solace in the woods. But the forest doesn’t offer a safe haven or a peaceful escape. Instead, both friends encounter strange, lustful creatures that mirror their desires and the challenges they face in their day-to-day lives. Everyone has a secret. Everyone is on the run. But from what? From whom? The woods quickly become a prison that Dora and Fannie cannot avoid, like their neighborhoods, their lives, and their minds. Welcome to the Woods is a true Van Warmerdam play: surprising, intriguing, and mercilessly funny. Written by celebrated Dutch filmmaker/playwright Alex van Warmerdam, WELCOME TO THE WOODS unfolds in a wonderfully bizarre fairy-tale-like world where nature, sex, imagination and religion come together in an unusual exploration of the significance (and insignificance) of life.
