We’d like to tell you a story. No, that’s not quite right. We’d like you to help me tell a story; a juice, messy, badly behaved story that refuses to stick to the plan. Our hero is a wee girl called Wee Red.
Red is being watched. Her big brother Ivar never lets her out of his sight, “she’s all I’ve got”, he worries. Even when she goes to Granny Gonks deep in the forest, a complex system of periscopes means she’s always under the adults’ watchful gaze. Well, almost always; apart from when she scoots into the bend, then, just for a moment she’s free to explore. But there are other eyes in the forest, and Wee Red is still being watched.
Wee Red and Her Wolf is a badly-behaved tale, inspired by Red Riding Hood, for brave souls aged seven and over. Join The Cultural Spring and author Laura Lindow for this exciting participatory storytelling event, full of the ideas and sounds contributed by young epic storytellers in South Tyneside.
There will be times when we will need your help, your wolf aversion skills, to bring the story to life and to tell the story. But there will also be times, when you can sit back and get lost with Wee Red.
And after the story, we’ll have a tasty lunch together and you’ll get to try a bowl of Granny Gonk’s special soup.
