Red Riding Hood - she’s older and wiser in St Leonards performance


Little Red Riding Hood is 66 and looking for love.

In fantastical one woman show Redder, a RADA trained poet and performer Gus Watcham turns the familiar fairy tale upside down and shakes it up to create a disturbed but humorous psychodrama for our times.

This intriguing piece of theatre magic comes to Kino-Teatr in St Leonards on Thursday March 7 at 7.30pm. Tickets £12.

Red Riding Hood is in her autumn years - but who is she now? This is darkly comic adult fairy story fuses folklore with stories from real lives, in an intimate storytelling and magical projected imagery.

In Redder, Brighton-based Watcham reveals the raw and gutsy truth about what really happened in the forest, as Red confronts the approach of old age.

Following Gus’s Kino-Teatr debut two years ago with the beautifully crafted performance-with-film This Is Always The Result, she returns with this celebration of ageing female sexuality on the eve of International Women’s Day, March 7.
