Savage Society presents a reading of LITTLE RED WARRIOR AND HIS LAWYER on Feb. 17
As part of the Skookum Series presented in partnership with Massey Theatre, Savage Society is happy to present a reading of Little Red Warrior and His Lawyer, a play written and directed by Kevin Loring. The reading will take place in the Plaskett Gallery in Massey Theatre at 7pm on Sunday, Feb. 17. Admission is free, and childminding will be provided.
Little Red Warrior and His Lawyer is a satirical fable about power, politics and procreation. Little Red is the last remaining member of his tribe. One day while heading into town, Little Red discovers that the development firm Smith, Smyth and Goldsmithe has violated his traditional territory. Enraged, he attacks one of their engineers, is arrested and assigned a court-appointed lawyer. Since Red no longer has a place to stay, the lawyer and his wife invite him to stay with them. But as they soon find out, when you invite a coyote into the coop, don't be surprised if he walks away with your chickens.
BONUS: Kevin Loring will be in attendance on Feb. 17 for a talkback after the reading.
