Introduction

Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood) is French writer and director Joël Pommerat’s first adaptation of a popular fairytale. In this version, Le Petit Chaperon Rouge is neglected by her mother and bravely faces the Big Bad Wolf on her own. With a simple, yet powerful, stage design, the audience is drawn in, as the actors bring the characters to life. Pommerat also makes use of simple theatrical language to heighten emotions and to develop a unique esthetic.

 

Pommerat created this adaptation for his young daughter in 2004 to help her understand his work and in memory of his mother. Le Petit Chaperon Rouge is the first in a trilogy of fairytales presented by Pommerat and Compagnie Louis Brouillard. The other two are Cinderella and Pinocchio. Such stories can be enjoyed by children, as well as adults, as they address the desires, fears, loneliness and freedom experienced while growing up.
