NORPA presents a Windmill Theatre Company production

about the show

He’s the most misunderstood character in fairytale history.

Put simply he has no friends. But then he does have incredibly sharp teeth, yellow eyes and his own ideas about personal hygiene, and he is the infamous Big Bad Wolf after all. No one likes him. Luckily one girl is brave enough to double check this wolf’s bad press and an unlikely friendship is born.

This hilarious, table-turning tale will have you wondering why you were so scared in the first place.
