A scruffy, exhausted man is lost in the woods at nightfall with only a few sentimental objects in his pockets. Alone in a clearing, he unloads his thoughts to the surrounding wilderness, ranting and raging, unraveling a story of a troubled past and of the family he adores, eventually coming to terms with the impossible truth of what he’s done.

In July of 2018, Matchstick presented its production of Don Hannah’s The Woodcutter at a totally transformed Bus Stop Theatre. Creating a forest inside the space, the dark and chilling one man show was a landmark show for the company.
