(Beware of Little Red Riding Hood)

Beware of Little Red Riding Hood - Örebro City Theater

Stage play by Emelie Östergren

Directed by Carl Johan Karlson

Scenography / Costume design by Sofia Romberg

The story of Little Red Riding Hood is one of our most well-known. Both adults and children know the story about the girl who walk through the deep forest to deliver food for her grandmother, being tricked by a wolf, being eaten and finally rescued by a hunter.

In Emelie’s version, however, Little Red Riding Hood become a new kind of fairy tale, about anger and wanting to go her own way rather than dragging a basket to grandma. Little Red Riding Hood, whose revolt even frightens the wolf himself. Somthing that started as a game completely gets out of control. Will it be possible to adjust?

Beware of Little Red Riding Hood is a twisted show with both fairytale shimmer, humor and a little horror. It’s about the fear of the unknown, about goodness and evil and about becoming good and starting to take responsibility for your own actions.
