A merry mix up in the forest when Little Red Riding Hood cannot be found. Luckily Robin Hood agrees to go on a quest to take some cakes and flowers to Grandma. Will he stay on the path or will he discover the big bad wolf who looks a bit like the Sherriff of Nottingham?

Garlic Theatre presents a funny, slapstick, glove puppet show with beautifully crafted puppets, clowning and gentle humour.

'Truly funny and captivating... a holy fool of a performer' Beverley Puppet Festival.

We were treated to an amazing feast of puppets, with slapstick, suspense, audience participation, high humour and an occasional frisson of fear...'

'I loved the play. I want to be the wolf because I am always very very hungry' Tom 5 years old
