Out Of The Woods – Episode 2
Monday 10 August @ 9:00 pm
NATIONAL THEATRE of SCOTLAND
As day turns to night, and he continues to struggle through the woods, a father keeps messaging his young daughter as he makes his way to her. But someone might have figured out why he’s really coming, and he absolutely can’t have that… Equal parts hilarious and sinister, Alan Cumming stars in the second of a bewitching new three-part short from writer Johnny McKnight, directed by Andrew Panton.
“I think at this time we find ourselves responding in so many different ways – bingeing box sets, absorbed in those books we never got round to reading, following every detail of the next development of this crisis, listening to our podcasts, going on that walk and really seeing the surroundings, putting on our favourite albums – and we do it to try and find some sort of familiarity or comfort in our stories. We go to stories in times of crisis. This is an opportunity to tell stories that either reflect, distract or shine a light on these unprecedented times. Keep safe.“
JOHNNY MCKNIGHT, WRITER

The Scenes for Survival Hardship Fund is a fundraising campaign launched by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with the Federation of Scottish Theatre, the McGlashan Charitable Trust and leading Scottish Theatre organisations, to raise money for those in the sector who have been hardest hit financially and are experiencing drastic economic and emotional hardship.
All donations to this fund will go directly to provide support for those most impacted within Scotland, be they actors, writers, creatives, musicians, technicians or any others within our industry.
A sector-wide call out with information and details of how to apply for support from the SFS Hardship Fund will be launched at the end of July 2020. The Federation of Scottish Theatre and the McGlashan Charitable Trust will ensure equitable distribution of the money raised.
