No Strapline

Angela Carter’s The Company of Wolves

Fri 20 Sep–Sat 12 Oct

New Vic Theatre

Co-Directed by Theresa Heskins and Vicki Amedume MBE

Imaginative staging, evocative soundscapes, spectacular acrobatics and theatrical invention combine to bring Angela Carter’s gripping horror story to life.

A dark night, in the grip of midwinter. A sense of foreboding fills the air. A girl sets off for grandmother’s house. A wolf howl echoes around the forest…

Her fellow townsfolk tell tales of beasts who hunger for blood and darkness, prowling the edges of the forest path, waiting for victims. But Red Riding Hood doesn’t believe in fear. Strong-minded, armed with a carving knife and a cunning mind, she feels invincible. A chance meeting with a huntsman turns an innocent journey into a seductive and terrifying race. Locked in a battle of wills, who will win the race and claim their victim?

In this rare stage version, The Company of Wolves is filled with danger, desire and suspense – a story of terror and transformation unlike anything you have experienced before
