In a Forest, Dark and Deep by Neil LaBute

Betty and Bobby grew up together. They’ve argued their way through childhood and troubled teen years. Then, one night, after they’ve been living their separate grown-up lives for years and years, Betty really needs Bobby’s help. Alone together for the first time in a long time, the rain lashing down on the cottage in the woods memories are relived, secrets unearthed, and lies exposed as they navigate a path to a place that threatens to show them who they really are.

LaBute’s  writing is so sharp, delivering cutting, fast-paced dialogue which explores the idea of truth and how it is manipulated to unearth a dense tangle of memories and assumptions.

Audiences should expect a strong dose of intrigue, tension and quick-fire dialogue. Combined with the play’s isolated forest location; the result is an absorbing, edge-of-your seat, drama.

In a Forest Dark and Deep played as part of Greater Manchester Fringe at  Salford Arts Theatre 5-10 July 2016.
