Review by Alexa Garcia
Red and Wolf is an apropos-for-the-venue reinvention of the classic tale of little red riding hood. The story is about a kinky encounter between two strangers which starts a peculiar conversation and atmosphere that makes both women question who is predator and who is prey. Clever, huh?
The production features only the titular red and wolf. The story is written and directed by Ingrid Oslund. It features Aislinn Brophy as red and Sara Kerr as Wolf. The two actresses were commanding and thorough.
I found question in the writing, however. Yes, it was a one-act but it still felt too short. An attempt at a deeper moral was made but much for fleshing out was needed. Clever idea … more meat.
