The Company of Wolves


Based on the stories of Angela Carter


'One beast and only one howls in the woods at night.'


In a tiny village on the edge of the mountains, a young girl puts on her red shoes and cloak, and heads into the forest alone, watched by unseen eyes. As the shadows lengthen, she begins to run…

Now the hunt begins. Help us to sniff out those who have been born feet first, to hunt those who are hairy on the inside…
