The Woodsman | June 2013

by Steven Fechter

"The Woodsman" reminds us that any soul, even the most troubled, might be worth saving.
 – The Washington Times

Evil. Sick. Monstrous.

David Passmore as Walter. Libby Brockman as Robin
After 12 years in jail, Walter is released back into community. His existence is quiet despair and therapy sessions. The police keep a hard eye on him. He tries to keep his urges under control. A one-night stand with a co-worker breaks him out of his self-imposed exile, and he reveals his troubled history. Then Walter meets Robin. She’s 11 years old. Will he let history repeat?

Green Room Award winning theatre company Act-O-Matic 3000 is proud to present the Australian premiere of The Woodsman by Stephen Fechter at the Mechanics Institute Performing Arts Centre, Brunswick. The Woodsman is a look behind the headlines to see what becomes of a man who has paid his debt for an unforgivable crime.

The basis of the 2004 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize nominee starring Kevin Bacon, The Woodsman is an unflinching drama which will surprise Melbourne audiences.
