About the Resource

Granny and the Wolf is a twenty-five minute play written specifically to be used as a GCSE performance piece by Mark Wheeller and a group of OYT members who know the requirements of the GCSE exam from experience. They hope this play will become a much used and much loved GCSE text in the years to come.

Inspired by Little Red Riding Hood, Granny and the Wolf takes a fresh approach to a familiar story – this time Granny and the Wolf are In Love! Their families don’t approve of this unconventional relationship and when Little Red Riding Hood decides to visit Granny, a harmless prank goes too far with tragic consequences.

"An interesting and well crafted play which offers roles for performers of all abilities and plenty of scope for those candidates offering performance support roles."
Nigel Turner - Head of Drama King Edward VI School

Granny and the Wolf makes an ideal Festival play as well as a study text.
