After years of incarceration in the Moscow Zoo, the Big Bad Wolf, along with his henchman Wayne Wolf, have escaped and vow revenge on Peter, Red Riding Hood, The Boy who cried wolf, and Sigmund Pig, the last of the three little pigs who have huddled together in Peter's fortress for protection. (Characters playing animals dress and make up in ways that suggest their animal identities, but are not in full animal masks or costumes.)

The cast should be relatively the same age as the characters grew up together. (30-40)

PETER: 30ish, handsome, sincere, and sensitive.

RED RIDING HOOD ("Red"): a fragile beauty.

BIG BAD WOLF ("Bad"): A lean mean, eating machine.

WAYNE WOLF: Bad's henchman. Wannabe Bad

GIRL II: Her epic fear of the Bad motivated her to "reinvent" herself. Trans actors encouraged to audition.
