The Wednesday Play: Red Riding Hood (1973)

Posted on February 6, 2013 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

This week's play is Red Riding Hood, one of ITV's Armchair Theatre productions from 1973. One of the last productions before the series' demise in 1974, it's a gripping psychological thriller directed by Joan Kemp-Welch and mirroring the story of Red Riding Hood. Starring Rita Tushingham and Keith Barron, it sees Tushingham caught up in a dismal domestic situation. Or is she, since possibly everything you see on-screen might be the result of Tushingham's distraught imagination? Challenging and disturbing, it's well worth watch.

As always, if you like it, buy it!
