It was so simple, just a few little bits in his diary, files that he kept in longhand with all his thoughts and wishes and dreams.

Bobby thinks he's simply lending his sister a hand with clearing out her cottage in the forest. But it's a dark and stormy night and his sister has a secret.

I know it can't be that bad, whatever was the reason this guy left here in such a hurry...

In a Forest, Dark and Deep by Neil LaBute premiered at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, in March 2011.

Review:

Praise for Neil LaBute:

"Neil LaBute is the most legitimately provocative and polarizing playwright at work today." --"New York Magazine"

"The play twists continually, and the truth is always one twist away. LaBute is such a skillful writer--edgy, funny, outrageous . . . " --"Financial Times"

"Very much a meditation on what is and is not true . . . and also a further manifestation of the longstanding authorial fascination with the close link between deep intimacy and dark violence." --"Chicago Tribune"
