Time for bed. Tuck yourself in. This is where Robyn’s story begins. How can they expect her to sleep at a time like this? She takes a book and starts to read. But she 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 wants to tell you what really happened through a world of homemade make-believe.

And here is where our story starts.

A gentle wolf with a broken heart…

The Wolf is isn’t big or bad, in fact he’s rather shy.

He won’t gobble up your Grandma, he’s an all-round nice guy.

Enjoy a new spin on this classic story – about two misfits who just want to fit in.

“A radical, Roald Dahl-inspired retelling. Imaginative, ingenious” Children’s Theatre Reviews

“A wonderful retelling of the old familiar classic…. tennis rackets become trees and teapots become angry mothers in this wonderful world of imagination. What makes this adaptation exceptional is the care visible throughout, and the magic in ordinary things.” Curious Mum

“A cunning creative path to take. Let’s be honest, how many kids really are sweet little angels? Each and every one of them likes to embellish a story for effect, so it’s perfectly plausible to believe that old red riding hood perhaps wasn’t really made of sugar, spice and all things nice.” Exeunt Magazine

“A comic edge, catchy tunes and an uplifting ending. A stunning performance and a show that has something that will speak to everyone.” Pregnant City Girl
