Directed by Drama Desk and Humanities Award-winning theatre and television director Steve Zuckerman (Broadway: Nuts; TV: Everybody Loves Raymond; Film: Israel Horovitz's North Shore Fish), and featuring Tony Award, Golden Globe Award, Emmy Award and Obie Award-winning actor Judd Hirsch (Broadway: Talley's Folly; TV: Taxi; Film: Independence Day), this production is produced in association with Darlene Kaplan Entertainment and Brierpatch Productions. Peter, an aspiring children's book author, is sent to the cabin of his idol, Simon, played by Judd Hirsch, a reclusive award-winning author and illustrator of children's books, to help him finish what might be his last book. Desperate to save his own career, Peter hopes to discover the secret of Simon's genius, but first he must accept the impossible task: helping Simon confront the monsters that populate the woods inside his mind. This darkly humorous play makes us question the cost of success.
