Red Riding Hood

Mike Kenny, playwright
Julian Butler, composer & lyricist


38 pgs. 1 female, 1 male Originally produced by Engine House Theatre and Lakeside Theatre, UK, in 2011 Run Time: 60 minutes Audience Recommendation: All Ages


Bridget and Stephen are on a sleepover at their grandmother’s house, but neither of them can sleep. So to pass the time, they decide to act out their favorite story with things found around the attic and clothes from the wardrobe. Soon what’s real and what’s imagined blur, and the children find themselves in the deep dark woods with a wolf tracking them down.

“…a clear and comic telling of the story that the children will remember all their lives.” –The Stage, UK

“[Red Riding Hood] hits the note perfectly. The audience of small children seemed spellbound throughout. Even the eleven-year-old keeping this reviewer company was chortling at the jokes.” –Left Lion, UK
