“The wedding festivities are under way. The glasses are primed for a toast when one of the guests feels compelled to make a terrible confession. The mood changes from joy to dread. That’s the starting point for the latest show for young audiences from the excellent Tangere Arts, a company whose distinctive mix of storytelling, physical theatre and live music has produced a number of hits, including The Tin Soldier. ”

Hood in the Wood by Noel Greig
TANGERE’S biggest success to date , is being toured nationally
watch this space
see review below
Tuesday January 15, 2008
Noel Greig’s pungent retelling of Little Red Riding Hood takes you deep into the woods and snares you in the thickets of the imagination. It gets the balance of nasty and nice, scary and safe, just right.
This is a show about fear and stereotyping, the path we all have to take to get through the woods and how sometimes we have to find the wild side of our nature in order to survive. Its final images owe something to the seductive hairiness of Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber – not bad for a show aimed at seven- to 11-year-olds.
Greig and the director, David Johnston, constantly subvert expectations in a show where the spit and poetry of the writing is cleverly given extra layers by Lewis Gibson’s live music and sound accompaniment.
Here, the tamed, urban world is at odds with nature, and it only gradually emerges why Little Hood’s mother is an uptight obsessive-compulsive, estranged from her wild, wandering mother who lives far away in the woods.
Played out on a bare stage with just four blood-red chairs, this simple piece of storytelling becomes emotionally, psychologically and theatrically sophisticated, largely due to Gibson’s sound-effects contributions. He offers everything from the deadening tick-tock of Little Hood’s home to the bubbling burps of the interior of the wolf’s stomach, where, Jonah-like, Little Hood and Granny find themselves.
Gary Lagden gives a tour-de-force performance, playing mother, child, granny and wolf with verve; he has the trick of reaching out to the audience to both scare and settle them.
This is a first-rate piece of storytelling that will make children squeal with terrified delight and parents shiver with recognition
