Ishara Int’l Puppet Festival

The Iranian theater group Safety Pin staged an adaptation of the famous fairy tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ at the Ishara Int’l Puppet Festival in India.
The play titled ‘The Fabulous Adventures of the Big Bad Wolf and Red Riding Hood’, and directed by Salma Mohseni-Ardehali and Sina Yeilagh-Beigi, had two performances this week at the festival, reports Honaronline.
It tells the story of Red Riding Hood, who is on her way to deliver some nice goodies from her mother to her grandma’s house, but gets lost in the forest, which is full of dangerous creatures. She then meets a big bad wolf with a growling tummy!
An interactive object theatre performance that will entertain and engage children & adults alike, the base story is the ordinary story of Little Red Riding Hood but it changes during the show as she loses her way in the forest of fairy tales (featuring Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel etc!) and it is the Big Bad Wolf who helps her find her way to her grandma’s house.
The 45-minute play performed in English, had previously toured the world winning awards such as the best work of the UNIMA festival in Armenia.
