About this show

Director/writer Joël Pommerat and his Compagnie Louis Brouillard make their much-anticipated New York premiere with a stark retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. In the beautifully concise, archetypal language of fairy tales, Pommerat rewrites the steps of the most famous walk through the woods, preserving its original structure while teasing out a profound rite of initiation and passage. What results is a crisp, wholly modern interpretation of a bittersweet classic. No less appropriate for adults as it is for children of all ages, this delicate story is perfect for anyone who has ever faced fear, loneliness, or the ambivalence of growing up.
