Get Ready For… Fairytale Farce!
Wolfgang, the greatest actor in the world, is preparing for the performance of his lifetime in the “true story” of Red Riding Hood when a delivery driver carrying a mysterious package interrupts his rehearsal. She boldly calls into question Wolfgang’s story, adamant that he should only tell the classic tale. As their story flourishes, a madcap romp through the popular fairy tale ensues. This lively adaptation is full of surprise and packed with wolf-sized humor, and reminds us that when something is important, bravery knows no bounds.

“I’m always looking at old stories and how they relate to today’s questions and challenges; it felt like the exact right moment to explore Red Riding Hood and the beliefs and biases the fairytale perpetuates.”
