“Big Bad” is a whimsical, comedic, farce involving many familiar characters from well known works of children's literature. The perennial villain, the Big Bad Wolf, is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged in fairytale land. Hilarity ensues as prosecutor, Little Red Riding Hood, presents her case with supporting testimony by the likes of the Three Little Pigs et al. The surprise verdict will delight audiences of all ages. Big Bad is being directed by AiM theatre veteran Joanna Pitts. Joanna last directed the original script A Tale of Two Tailors in 2010.
