Little Red on Surviving Post-Wolf 

“Being a fairy-tale heroine is really lonely, because no one gets your shit.” Red, Take Back the Hood 

Take Back the Hood is a one-woman, modern retelling of Little Red Riding Hood in which Red explores, reclaims and liberates her “story”.

“Grim, funny, brilliantly wicked… In fact I enjoy pretty well everything about Take Back the Hood.” – Terry MacTavish, Theatreview
“Humorous, clever, and brave”
– Lori Leigh, Theatreview
