The story of a little girl with a red cape who went to see her sickly grandmother to take her some cake is probably familiar to everyone. It is, indeed, one of the most well-known fairytales in the world that – as fairytales usually do – started out as a folk tale at least a thousand years ago and that has a countless number of variants. The children in Estonia may either take the version written down by Charles Perrault’s as well as that of the Brothers Grimm from a bookshelf, and then come to see the play at Theatre House.

It is more than 30 years since the last staging of Little Red Riding Hood (1982) in Vanemuine and there is a connection to the present production. Namely, the producer at the time, Raivo Adlas, and Kais Adlas who played the role of the fox, also take part in the present production, however, in completely different roles. For the producer Veikko Täär this is his first production at Vanemuine.

The premiere was on 15 November 2014 in Theatre House
