An experimental play written by Sarah Finn featuring large-scale puppetry, animation, and highly physical theatre, In the woods where the men work is an exploration of corporate power in the face of environmental destruction. Set in the last remaining forest on Earth, a group of businessmen from the Ministry of Environment are put on trial for their unforgivable crimes. Sistine, who rules the forest with her pet ox, leads the men’s trial. They deny their culpability, but one off them, Philip, seems to be unlike the rest. Is he capable of turning against the agency? Will he revolt against the values that have assured him his power? Can he save the world from its end?
Adaptable for indoor and outdoor spaces alike, In the woods where the men work can transport audiences in spaces large or small. The Woods has been performed in theaters, warehouses, and public spaces; it can be brought just about anywhere.
