‘Your darkness will destroy you but it won’t hurt me’

A modern day fairy tale, Into the Dark Woods is Charlene Kelly’s debut play. Through the familiar archetypes of fairy-tale, Charlene deftly entices us into rare territory, using the living realm of the woods as an extraordinary invitation into the world as experienced by someone with an intellectual disability.

A new voice in Irish playwriting, Into the Dark Woods is a subtle, powerful play that speaks with gentleness and a ravaging rage.

Blue Teapot is a multi-award winning Theatre Company, Performing Arts School & Outreach programme for people with intellectual disabilities at the forefront of arts & disability in Ireland. We are committed to high-quality theatre, training & the celebration of creativity.
