Cecil's Woods will be presented at a table read on Saturday November 26, 2022 - location still to be determined, most likely it will be at Alamo City Studios with one other script, Amy and Angel.
When construction of a gas station threatens his home, a young orphan living in harmony with nature on a densely wooded interstate median must unite his unique animal friends and a cast of characters to save "Cecil's Woods." A multicultural Moonrise Kingdom meets Holes with a dash of The Jungle Book.
