A girl is ripening on the edge of town, uncontrolled, chaotic, voracious. This is an orderly place. Everything is on the map: the last scrap of woods, the old house on the outskirts. You can see the line where the big new road will go. Right through Red’s room. Everyone thinks the predators are gone. But what if they’ve just gone… inside?


Inspired by Little Red Riding Hood, the most sexually charged of folk tales, REDWOLF is a world-premiere, full-length play co-written by Ragged Wing Artistic Director Amy Sass and nationally recognized playwright Anthony Clarvoe. Ripe with hunger, sexuality, and the conflict between the paved and the wild, REDWOLF follows a young woman’s journey from girlhood to wolfhood. This show marks the culmination of Ragged Wing’s JUST RIPE season and our first full-length show in our new home, The Flight Deck.

"Have you ever thought, while reading the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, "You know what this story needs? More cunnilingus," then REDWOLF, by Ragged Wing Ensemble may be for you. Smart, feminist… a fairy tale for adults. Red is no passive damsel in distress. She goes after what she wants and has no trouble asserting herself in adult realms or questioning authority. Haunting vocal numbers...foreplay with hand puppets, a stripping fight scene, and a large vagina diagram... Grandma is a badass, axe-wielding hunter... An incisive postmodern edginess... REDWOLF makes salient points about the "Other," wild spaces lost to development, class struggles, and our cultural fears surrounding untamed female sexuality, all with seductiveness and humor."
