    A reinterpretation of an old Charles Perrault fairy tale by Gintarė Radvilavičiūtė, one of the most compelling Lithuanian puppetry artists, famous for her distinctive style, genuine directorial traits, sensitivity towards dramatic scenery, as well as penchant for experments and creating new formulas of theatrical expression. This time the viewers are served a platter of felt woolen glove puppets, soft-as-wool music and an elegantly shuffled plot, taking a different path into the heart of the story.

    “Just like any drama director dreams of staging Hamlet, in theatre for children, every director dreams of exploring the theme of Little Red Riding Hood,” says the play’s director. “This has become a classic that contains layers upon layers… This time I set out to touch upon the theme of bullying: what do you do when you’re no longer sure who you are – a wolf but not really; vegatarian albino with sharp teeth on top of all…”

    Creators of the play assure they did not deviate from the original tale too much, just looked at it from a different perspective – that of the wolf. Why does Albinas the Wolf eat up Red Riding Hood and her grandma? What makes him do so? What is it like to be different? The bullying encourages you to not give up, fight by using means that you have chosen or that were pushed onto you. Means that often just make others laugh or, even worse, upset them. That’s where the show’s message stems from: “There is a beast lurking in each tiny little creature and it can be awakened anytime… Especially if love comes across…”
