A contemporary fable. By Max Bush.
Cast: 4m., 10w., extras possible. Thirteen-year-old Carly, dragging her 10-year-old sister behind, ventures into the forbidden forest of the Other Folks. There she finds far more than she was looking for—riddles, games, dangers, challenges. You can enjoy Folkwood for its fun and chases and captures, but it also yields rich rewards for those willing to explore its images and ambiguities. The world of the Other Folks is filled with traditional mythological symbols—night, water, time, owls, earth, forest and moon. They give the play a resonance that will echo long after the curtain has gone down. Unit set. Approximate running time: 50 minutes.
