Sign Stage on Tour presents a Deaf Theatre adaptation of a classic tale. What if the Big Bad Wolf wasn’t so bad after all? Maybe there’s a reason he acts so “Big” and so “Bad”. What if he’s just another lovable person like you and me, only he makes bad decisions? In Red Riding Hood and the ’Not So’ Bad Wolf, the audience learns that the Bad Wolf was born Deaf and grew up without a supportive family. Because he couldn’t hear, he was teased and bullied at school. This time… it’s Red Riding Hood who comes to the rescue of the Bad Wolf. After many years of feeling empty inside, he learns the true value of friendship. “Oh my… what a big heart you have.” “The better to love you with, my dear.”
