The Last Woodwose

A new play by Suffolk writer Thea Smiley. Facing extinction, the last Woodwose, a wild woman of the woods, tells the extraordinary story of her life through shapeshifting, storytelling and magic, and reveals the origin of the legendary Green Children. 

The Last Woodwose weaves fact with fantasy in a magical, mythical tale illuminating the life-blood and wonders of the forest: the woodwose herself is its guardian. 

Starring Hilary Greatorex, Rosalind Burt and Huw Brentnall, with traditional songs and original music by Sylvia Hallett. Directed by Alys Kihl.

Touring to St. John's Church in Saxmundham, Kaliwood Woodland in Halesworth, Staverton Park Woodland in Wantisden, St. Michael's Church in Framlingham and Westhill Barn in Brandeston from Friday 13th to Sunday 22nd September.
