Red/Wolf is a unique and subversive cabaret that twists the tale of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and takes it to dark places.
We all know how the story goes;
– Girl visits sick grandmother
– She enters wood & strays from the path
– She encounters a wolf
– Evil is unleashed
– Good prevails
But somehow, on re-reading, it’s hard to accept it can be that simple.
Rebecca Humphries revisits the classic Brother’s Grimm story and, through original music and black comedy, explores its’ underlying themes. Of responsibility. Family. Fear. And the wolves that exist within ourselves.
