In the Forest, She Grew Fangs (West Coast Premiere) October 10-Nov 15 2014
by Stephen Spotswood Directed by Andrew Klaus-Vineyard

Lucy lives with her grandmother in a small rural town that could be Anywhere, USA. Tormented by her high school classmates who find out about her troubled past and her mother’s drug addiction, she is a lonely outsider who spends her time wandering the forest that lies just outside of town. When she develops a crush on Jenny, a glamorous new student, Lucy experiences strange visions, grows physically stronger and her senses sharpen- just as mysteriously savaged deer carcasses begin appearing in the woods. Using the archetypical story of Little Red Riding Hood as a backdrop for a timely exploration of teen bullying In the Forest, She Grew Fangs is a riveting evening of theater; the Washington Post describes it as “part timeless adolescent psychodrama, part harsh truths about growing up in our texting-and-social-media era, and part bloodshot fairy tale.” Defunkt's production is a west coast premiere and is featured in the October 2014 issue of American Theater Magazine.
