Presented by Infinite Magic Productions, Little Red Riding Hood will run at the Chelsea Theatre from the 30th November until the 24th December.
Written by Mike Kenny and directed by Owen Calvert-Lyons, Little Red Riding Hood is a fast paced two-hander that takes the traditional tale and gives it a twist.
It’s Christmas Eve at Grandma’s house and what a big wardrobe Grandma’s got…
Grandma’s house makes funny noises and what a lot of clothes Grandma’s got…
It’s impossible to sleep when there’s a story to be told about big hungry wolves that would swallow you down in one gulp.
The production will also feature songs by Simon Slater and will be performed by Lorna Jinks and Peter Hoggart.
Lorna Jinks trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Her theatre credits include performances at the Pleasance and Tristan Bates Theatres, and as Nurse Audrey in the BBC drama The Best of Men. Peter Hoggart’s theatre work includes: 1001 Nights (The Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch), Stop! You’re Killing Me! (Soho Theatre), A Fistful of Spaghetti (Leicester Square Theatre).
