Into the Wood is an absurd comedy about a man who sends himself into exile because society no longer accepts his strongly-held comedic beliefs. Okay, fine, I’ll stop beating around the proverbial bush. It’s about a man who moves to a cabin in the middle of the woods so he can tell dick jokes without being judged by society. It’s all a giant metaphor (or an allegory, if Plato would not be offended by us calling it such) of course. What that metaphor is – well, we’ll let the viewer decide.
