Lucy lives with her grandmother in a rural town and is tormented by her classmates who find out about her troubled past and her mother’s drug addiction. An outsider who spends her time in the forest outside of town, Lucy experiences visions and her senses sharpen as mysteriously savaged deer carcasses appear in the woods. Defunkt’s production uses the archetypical story of Little Red Riding Hood as a backdrop for a timely exploration of teen bullying. This is the West Coast premiere and it’s featured in the October 2014 issue of American Theater Magazine.
The play is presented in partnership with the Lines for Life Oregon YouthLine and reservations are encouraged as space is limited. defunktheatre.com or call 503.481.2960.
