THE BIG BAD WOLF, Last Frontier Theatre Conference, AK (Marguerite Louise Scott)

Theatre that reflects present day tensions and issues should ... make you uncomfortable. This play forces you to think about those stories, those lies, those myths about Others, the marginalized, including immigrants, told to children in homes across America at bedtime. Consider this for your political themed festival. It’s a conversation starter.
— Asher Wyndham, playwright
