KickstArt, in association with The Durban Botanic Gardens Trust presents Little Red Rides Again, further tales of Little Red Riding Hood, which comes to the Durban Botanic Gardens Amphitheatre in time for the July school holidays from July 1 to 17, 2022.

Not long after the story we all know, Little Red Riding Hood returns to Granny’s cottage in the woods for a sleepover. But their evening of baking and bed-time stories is soon interrupted by an unwelcome knock at the door from a furry paw… Another wolf is on the prowl, and Little Red and Granny must use all their wits and ingenuity to keep him out… or be gobbled up for dinner!

Kickstart and three delightful comic actors, Bryan Hiles, Belinda Henwood and Cara Roberts return to the Durban Botanic Gardens this July Holiday for a hilariously rowdy re-telling of this well-loved tale.

Booby-traps, pranks and pratfalls abound, as Little Red and Granny teach the Big Bad Wolf a serious lesson about bullying, and unexpectedly, learn a thing or two themselves. This original, new family show is devised by the Company, and designed and directed by Greg King.
