A tragicomical musical revision of traditional fairy tales told from the perspective of the wolf.

A tragicomical musical revision of traditional fairy tales told from the perspective of the wolf. Through its eyes we learn that, instead of intending to harm the Little Pigs or Little Red Riding Hood, it was just the target of prejudice, of a series of unhappy and funny coincidences, and serious misunderstandings. In the end, it is not the villain we are accustomed to seeing, but an unfortunate victim of circumstances. Through a fun, captivating and imaginative recreation, The Girl, the Hunter and the Wolf approaches key questions regarding the development of a sense of community – instead of hatred and intolerance, it highlights civility, tolerance and shared experiences.
