Red Riding Hood

Dates: 15 – 24 March 2018

Playwright: Roger Hall

Director: Lauren Ford-Jones


A wolf has escaped from Wellington Zoo and is terrorising Porirua residents – thanks to the bungling efforts of a couple of failed List MPs on work experience. He’s dangerous, and must be caught – and before the next full moon.

Red Riding Hood, still living with her mother in Whitby, and dear old Grandma in nearby Plimmerton are all looking for love.

Meanwhile, Sir Roger Bounder, the evil property developer, has his eyes set on Karehana Bay Reserve, and Grandma’s small adjoining cottage.
