Angela Carter’s take on the classic Red Riding Hood story is a deeply eroticised one, full of suppressed appetites and an undercurrent of sexual menace. As our young heroine comes of age, her grandmother tries to warn her of the many threats she will soon face. Granny’s stories, like this adaptation, step up and down like a ladder through multiple layers of metaphor. Carter’s version of the myth is a meditation on sexual awakening, gender roles and repression which recalls the spirit of the Brothers Grimm. The young members of 3Bugs bring the story vividly to life with music, masks and physical theatre. The interactive element here is immersive rather than intrusive so don’t fear the wolf!
