A tongue-in-cheek retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood story, where Grandmother takes matters into her own hands, eating the wolf and running for Prime Minister. Along the way, we meet other liberated fairy-tale heroines, including Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Rose Red. Written to be performed with live cello music.
"Eating the Wolf is a must-see for anyone who has wrestled with gender-politics, be they axe or mop wielders, corporate or home executives ... like [Caryl] Churchill's plays, it should play around the world." John Smythe, National Business Review
"... cleverly written and cynical take on the traditional Red Riding Hood story." Ewan Coleman, Dominion Post
