A walk through a mysterious forest late at night. A young woman with a secret past. A social outcast who is simultaneously tormented and ignored. A monster lurking in the shadows. And the most unpredictable spectre of them all, teenage hormones. IN THE FOREST, SHE GREW FANGS by Stephen Spotswood is a bloody fairy tale set in the world of a Gillian Flynn thriller, sprinkled with a dash of Gossip Girl, that delves into the power young women possess--and how they may use it if pushed too far. It is the second production in Also Known As Theatre’s debut season, which explores the reality that while we are each the hero of our own story, we may very well be the villain of someone else’s.

Also Known As Theatre produces plays that ask, “Who were you before society told you who you were supposed to be?” We present stories that explore the performative nature of person-to-person interactions, and characters who exemplify the tension between social expectations and the essential self: Sometimes courageous, sometimes cowardly, always deeply human. Life--also known as theatre. Also Known As Theatre is committed to partnering with like-minded community organizations to deepen the conversations and discoveries sparked by our work. The company was founded in 2017 by Alissa Cordeiro, Alexandra Smith, and Kelly Smith. Past presentations include the world premiere production of A Good Death by Shelley M. Hobbs in August 2018 and staged readings of A Good Death (Toronto Fringe Festival cutting) in November 2017 and Hannah by Kelly Smith in April 2018.
