A VISCERAL REIMAGINING OF THE LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD FAIRYTALE SET AGAINST A CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE
WORLD PREMIERE: MAY 30TH - JUNE 11TH AT THE WEST VILLAGE THEATRE
WHO'S TO BLAME FOR THE BIG BAD WOLF?
Youth, violence, sexuality, family, and growing up; a visceral retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale set against a modern landscape.Three years in the making: the ensemble of Major Matt Mason Collective members led by Eric Rose of Ghost River Theatre will re-form to present this highly theatrical devised creation. Shadowing, distorting, shattering, and reconstructing the fairy tale form we are asking the questions: Why has this story pervaded across countless cultures and generations? And in an age of rapidly redefined ideas and awareness surrounding sexuality and gender, what does it mean to tell this story today?
