Synopsis

The Tale of Little Red Riding Hood by Simon Brett

The aristocratic Boronski family live in Siberia in the years before the Russian Revolution, and a lazy, snobbish, spoilt bunch they are, except the grandmother Babushka who remembers their humble origins. Just as Spring is about to begin, their lives are disrupted by the evil Fox, who condemns Siberia to eternal cold and despatches the Wolf, her slave, to kill Babushka. One by one the Boronskis fall foul of the voracious Wolf, and only the brave woodcutter Ivan can help them ... Darker and more thoughtful than the average pantomime, The Tale of Little Red Riding Hood mixes Chekhov with cheek, Pushkin with pratfalls and the result is a very original blend of mysterious beauty, spine-chilling menace, songs - and much laughter.
