Little Red Riding Hood plans to take a basket of goodies to her Gran who lives deep in the woods. But The Big Bad Wolf, might have other plans for her.

The wolf has been set free by Gordon Gazumper to terrorise the locals into selling their homes to him for a pittance. And enlists burglars Hammer and Tongs to assist him. Red asks her friend Peter Piper to escort her through the woods, but they get separated when the wolf ambushes them.

Red eventually reaches her Gran’s cottage only to discover that the Wolf has been there before her. Has her gran been eaten and will Red suffer the same fate. Find out by reading the script in full.

[USR] is a signpost, that reads BARKING WOODS. Music cue 3: Chorus. After song ends…

Enter Peter [SR] sweeping stage.

PETER: Hiya boys and girls! Welcome to the beautiful town of Barking. I’m Peter Piper, and I’m the town’s, Waste Disposal And Environmental Enhancement Officer.

CHORUS 1: I thought you were a road sweeper, Peter.

CHORUS 2: He is, but the council’s just given all its workers new job titles.

CHORUS 3: My favourite’s, Optical Illumination Facilitator.

CHORUS 4: What’s that then?

CHORUS 3: Window Cleaner.

Exit Chorus [SR] laughing.

PETER: I like my new title, it makes me sound important. Now, as you all know, council workers are a friendly, fun-loving lot. So, whenever I come on and shout who let the dogs out? You all respond, who…who…who…who? Okay? Well, we are in Barking, so it’s pretty apt. Let’s have a go then. [exits and re-enters] Who let the dogs out? [repeat until happy] Fantastic!

Enter Barney [SL] wearing several pairs of socks and no shoes.

BARNEY: Hello, Peter.

PETER: Hiya Barney! ‘Ere, how come you aren’t wearing any shoes today?

BARNEY: Mum told me I should put on a new pair of socks every day, so I did and now I can’t get my shoes on.

PETER: You’re supposed to take the old pair off first!

BARNEY: You learn something new every day, don’t you?

PETER: So, what are you up to today, Barney?

BARNEY: I’ve just been for a job interview.

PETER: What job was it for?

BARNEY: Village idiot.

PETER: And did you get it?

BARNEY: No, they said I wasn’t stupid enough.

PETER: I’d appeal if I were you Barney.

BARNEY: What was that barking I heard earlier all about?

PETER: I’m just playing a little game with the audience.

BARNEY: What game’s that then?

PETER: I shout, who let the dogs out? And they shout back, who…who…who…who?

BARNEY: And who did let them out then?

PETER: Who let out what?

BARNEY: All those dogs?

PETER: There are no dogs, Barney!

BARNEY: So, what was that barking I heard earlier all about?

PETER: This is starting to feel like groundhog day.

Enter Red Riding Hood [SR] reading a letter.

PETER: Hello Red!

RED: [looks up] Oh, hello Peter.

PETER: What’s that you’re reading Red?

RED: It’s a letter from Granny Hood, asking me when I’m going to visit her again.

BARNEY: I wrote a letter once.

PETER: How Barney? You’ve never been to school in your life.

BARNEY: That’s because school’s a complete waste of time.

RED: Oh no, it isn’t!

BARNEY: Oh yes, it is! [to audience] Isn’t it boys and girls?

PETER: [to audience] You’re not supposed to agree with him!

RED: What makes you think school’s a waste of time, Barney?

BARNEY: Because the more you learn the more you can forget, and the more you forget the less you know. Whereas the less you learn the less you can forget, and the less you forget, the more you know – simple.

PETER: You certainly are.

RED: So, what was this letter you wrote then, Barney?



BARNEY: That’s right.

PETER: [realising] Oh, A!

BARNEY: No, just A.

RED: As scintillating as this conversation is, I really must be going. I need to buy some goodies to take to gran’s.

BARNEY: And I need to buy some elbow grease.

PETER: Elbow grease doesn’t really exist Barney, it’s just a saying.

BARNEY: Mum will be disappointed then.

RED: Why will she?

BARNEY: She said I need to use it a bit more around the house. Bye now. [exits SR]

PETER: I’ve been thinking Red.

RED: What about Peter?

PETER: Well, you don’t have a boyfriend, and I don’t have a girlfriend. And I was wondering, if perhaps, in the fullness of time, you might possibly consider, at some point not, not having a boyfriend?

RED: Are you asking if I’d like to be your girlfriend Peter?

PETER: Whatever gave you that idea Red? But just for arguments sake, what if I were asking you to be my girlfriend?

RED: I’d say I’m very flattered Peter, but I’m not really after a boyfriend right now.

PETER: Well let me know when you are, and I’ll make sure I’m at the front of the queue.

RED: [laughs] You’re so funny Peter, and you always make me laugh.

PETER: Then maybe you ought to sit in the audience and show them how it’s done.

RED: I’ll see you later, then. [exits SL]

PETER: I fancy Red like mad, but she doesn’t seem to take me seriously.

Enter Chorus [SR]

CHORUS 1: Hi Peter!

PETER: [downbeat] Hi guys.

CHORUS 2: What’s the matter, Peter? You look a bit down today.

PETER: It’s because nobody ever takes me seriously.

CHORUS 3: Well, you are playing the comic lead.
