Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Metaphors, a fairy tale for the future, written by Mike van Graan, has one performance at the Hilton Arts Festival this weekend. The show offers acerbic commentary on the big bad wolves who threaten to eat our future.

Imagine the end of poverty. A world in which no-one will go hungry. Where every child will have a decent high school education. Climate change will be reversed. Violence against women eradicated. And everyone will live long, productive lives. Utopia? Perhaps. But these are just some of the goals set by world leaders to be achieved by 2030. This romp through the “Sustainable Development Goals” will both entertain and educate. Playwright Mike van Graan's "Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad metaphors" offers an invitation to dream with us…

Little Red Riding Hood... received a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the NAF. The production is directed by Khutjo Green, with set and lighting design by Wilhelm Disbergen and costume design by Nomzamo Maseko.

Share in this raucous romp through the SDG's at the Hilton Arts Festival on Saturday September 14, 2019, at 18h30 in the Memorial Hall.
