Red Riding Hood

Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

We are so lucky to have Stratford Circus on our doorstep with so many great productions to encourage an early love of theatre. Their latest must-see is Red Riding Hood and The Wolf  Saturday the 7th of April. Suitable for ages 7 and up, this twist on a classic retold by Jon Barton will have you questioning everything you thought you knew about the Big Bad Wolf!

Did he really try to gobble up a grandmother or is there more to the story than we may have been told…

Robyn tries to settle in for the night and read herself to sleep but she simply can’t relate to Red Riding Hood, sugar and spice and all things nice. There are two sides to every tale, and that is not how this one goes! What if the Big Bad Wolf wasn’t big or bad at all? What if they got it wrong?

Robyn’s character will inspire children to think about their bedtime stories in a whole new way. Acting out her own version of events Robyn brings regular household items like a tennis racket or a pillow to life as puppets in a totally engaging and hilarious way. Sure to ignite even the most cynical imaginations as she makes magic from the mundane.

Retold in a Roald Dahl inspired rhyming verse and full of rollicking fun, The Little Angel Theatre Company’s Red Riding Hood and the Wolf carries an underlying message.

Not simply a tale of baddies getting their just desserts but instead a theme of tolerance and nonjudgement. That we’re all just misfits trying to fit in.

Perhaps something we all need to be reminded of sometimes.
