Little Wolf

Fri 17 Nov, 2.00pm: captioned performance using iPads

Shot through with deliciously dark ‘Scandi-Noir’ touches, Little Wolf is a must-see for lovers of the brooding, icy psychological thrillers that have ignited TV drama in recent years.

Award-winning Welsh writer and director Simon Harris, and LUCID Theatre Company, present this major present-day retelling of Ibsen’s compelling classic of modern drama, Little Eyolf.

Little Wolf is a play that speaks to the heart of our current uncertainty – one that’s vital, raw and often blisteringly funny.

'Harris, as both writer and director, gives us dazed, beautiful people suffering wittily and stylishly and is well served by a talented cast.'
British Theatre Guide

Rita and Alfred are haunted by a sense of responsibility for the physical disability of their nine-year-old son, Wolf, who suffered an accident while they were in the very ecstasy of passion. Wolf’s subsequent disappearance and death, along with the discovery of Alfred’s love for his supposed half-sister, yields a tornado of mutual recrimination in an already troubled marriage.

'Little Wolf burns with the raging pain of grief, the seething resentment of a loveless marriage and the illicit passion of incestuous desire.'
Wales Arts Review

This is a production that is an intense and compelling chamber drama. It is driven by emotions that are passionate and visceral while drawing the audience deep into the heart of the family’s world.

Little Wolf is a play that will leave you wanting to discover more.
'Harris’ adaptation is funnier than the subject matter would suggest, but ultimately the drama is fuelled by heartache.'
