Brilliant! Matthew Woods's fearless direction combined with a troupe of fearless actors made for a haunting, yet beautiful night theatre.

fascinating, fun, inventive, engaging, compelling, and at times quite beautiful movement-based theatre, extremely well-executed. A pleasure!

Quotes & Highlights

“Angela Carter’s radio-play takes on “Sleeping Beauty” and “Little Red Riding Hood,” are a little different from the versions you grew up with. Cannibalism, vampires, werewolves, and blood — lots of blood — figure prominently.”—Boston Globe
“Many artists have done their own personal take on fairy tales like “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Sleeping Beauty,” but few of them really elevate the genre. Carter’s radio plays “The Company of Wolves” and “Vampirella” do.“—_”EDGE Boston":http://www.edgeboston.com/entertainment/theatre/reviews//150648/hairy_tales_
_"___Hairy Tales__, in no uncertain terms, awed me with its artistry and execution.“—_”My Entertainment World":http://www.myentertainmentworld.ca/2013/10/dark-voices-come-to-vivid-life-in-hairy-tales/_
“_Matthew Wood evokes the poetry and the pulse of two very different Carter gems in ’adults-only’ one- act dramatizations of “The Company of Wolves” and “Vampirella (Lady of the House of Love)” … “Vampirella” is a world-class haunt.“—_”My South End":http://www.mysouthend.com/index.php?ch=arts&sc=&sc2=news&sc3=&id=150429
