By the modern Russian playwright Yevgeny Schwartz. Translated by George Shail.
Cast: 6m., 4w. (extras). "Be careful, Red Riding Hood," warns Mother, "as you go by the swamp. Don't stumble. Don't slip. Don't trip. Don't fall in the water." Red Riding Hood can't believe there could be danger on her path and she disregards the warnings. The birds become a friendly reconnaissance squad. The rabbits, to whom she taught courage, are prepared to die in her defense, and the shifting patterns of battle that emerge in this war between good and bad animals make this play extraordinary. One ext. set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
