Two lovers who want nothing more than to
be together are threatened by the lusty desires of a greedy miser, the very
same scoundrel who plans on tearing down the home of two trusty servants. How
far would you go to be with the one you love? What would you do to protect your
home? Based on traditional scenarios from the Italian style of Commedia dell’
Arte, The Wooers’ Woods is a new riotous Commedia dell'Arte comedy that brings you love and lust,
adventure and intrigue, slapstick and chaos. Everything you can hope for in thedark woods. Meet us there… at midnight.
Cast size can be adjusted with doubling. There are 3 female characters and 8 male characters. With masks some of those male characters can easily be played by women.
The Wooers Woods was written for and first produced by Calgary Young People's Theatre in July, 2013.
The original production of The Wooers Woods will be remounted for the Calgary International Children's Festival in May, 2014.
