After a tragedy in the Whitetail National Forest, 18-year-old Peregrine Wells seeks out survivalist skills from an enigmatic old recluse.

From the same team that brought listeners The Bright Sessions, ARCS and Greenhouse comes a new scripted musical series set in a sleepy northern Minnesota town reeling from a loss of innocence it’ll never get back. Accompanied by an original folk-pop score, In Strange Woods explores themes of grief, adolescence and our precarious relationship with the wilderness.

“When In Strange Woods was first brought to Atypical, our entire team knew immediately that we wanted to be involved. Matt, Jeff and Brett are such talented storytellers and the story they’ve created is so special. As a longtime podcaster, having the opportunity to bring a musical like this into the medium has been incredibly fulfilling. As a lifelong musical theatre fan, I can’t wait for these songs to be added to the musical theatre canon. To bring this story of hope and perseverance to podcast audiences is easily the highlight of my 2020.” – Lauren Shippen​, Executive Producer.
