Adapted by Bryan Elsley from the novel by Robin Jenkins

The well known tale from Robin Jenkins, played in an environmental forest set.

 

First there is the fun of getting seated. The audience enters a wood, treads through a thick carpet of bark and cones and hunkers down on logs and stumps. On your face you will feel the rains of a storm that invades the forest. You will feel the panicked reverberations of the deer hunt, the shock of gunfire. Your neck will stretch as you watch trees scaled. You will taste the fear. You will smell the evil. You will share the agony and the repentance.
