WILD BEASTS SLEEP IN MY FOREST
A one-woman show created by Laurel Butler
Performed at the International Home Theater Festival, Oakland, CA, 2013
"There is, or was once, a woman in rural Oklahoma, and I can see what she sees - the laundry, the dishes, and the horribly beautiful creatures in the wilderness beyond her home. "Wild Beats Sleep in my Forest" is a series of songs strung together by my testament to this woman’s mystic visions, tormented yearning, and delicate unrest."
