She started life as a little red crayon and then, there she was - a little red hood, barely recognisable as the legend from the fairy tale. The wolf is still mean, black, big and bad, but he also happens to be really, really dumb.
"Leray’s startling, pared-down scenes show what drama can be achieved with one red crayon, a little black ink and immense French style. Well done Phoenix Yard for introducing a British audience to this. It’s totally brilliant." Amanda Craig, The Times, Saturday 19th February 2011
