About This Show

The City that Cried Wolf is a rollicking theater-noir starring favorite nursery rhyme characters a la Monty Python! Little Bo Peep is a sultry singer who seeks her sheep. Jack B. Nimble is the Private Eye hot on her tail. With sex and adrenaline pumping violence, can Jack crack Rhyme Town’s stickiest murder? Or has he fallen for the wrong dame? With three little pigs in satin, bears in teddies, and rub-a-dub-dub three men in a tub, this not your average fairytale. Rhymetown is going to the wolves!

The show is written by Brooks Reeves and directed by Dan Barnes and Leta Tremblay, with choreography by Alberto Peart and original music composed by Brendan Barr.
