caught: the woods

Fifth House Ensemble


Caught: The Woods

with Emmy Bean, theater artist and puppeteer

Funny and terrifying visions of nature dance before a young man’s eyes while he waits trapped in a trench for rescue after sneaking out at night against his parents’ wishes.   Caught: The Woods is a dark and playful meditation on creatures in captivity, why we catch things, and what we imagine when we ourselves get caught.
