Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

Written by Jon Barton

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 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 Little Angel Theatre production based on the book by Emma Dodd published by The Templar Company Limited.

Family Club tickets are now sold out for this performance. Standard price tickets are still available.


“Cheery rhyming verse invites us to see both sides of the story… [And] a new and charming way of introducing an old story to a fresh audience” Time Out

“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
