Little Girls Alone In The Woods

Little Girls Alone In The Woods

Presented by Jopuka Productions
In an ordinary street, in an ordinary suburb, in an ordinary town, something is amiss. It's not the maths exam the teens are about to fail, or the overdue essay. It's not global warming or fast-fashion sweatshops. It's a low buzz of anxiety, a quiet terror in the middle of the night.

Morgan Rose's little girls alone in the woods is a whip-smart adaptation of The Bacchae that puts a contemporary feminist lens on the Greek legend of Dionysus, the god of wine, fertility, festivity, theatre and ritual madness. It dares us to go into the woods and seek out what knowledge lies beyond the border of respectability and rules.

Girls have been going missing.
They've either walked off into the bush to live out some wild fantasyoror” The reaction by the adults becomes more extreme as more girls go missing and its consequences absolute. Little Girls Alone in the Woods follows the experience of an after school study group trying to make sense of these events and their anxiety riddled town, all whilst trying to get their homework done. Their experience becoming more personal as one of their own disappears and we find out what really lies beyond the borders, rules and restrictions of the town and its authorities. This engaging script explores binaries such as social conformity/individual freedom, rules/desire, tradition/evolution, and young/old, through a feminist lens, whereby a tragedy is told from the point of view of the disempowered.
