The Winter Wolf

Otherworld Theatre
3914 N Clark Street Chicago

It's Christmas night in Cora's house. She's visited by her beloved grandfather, a man of high spirits and failing health. They sit around the fireplace as she listens to the legend of the Winter Wolf, a strange creature who serves as Time's hunter, stalking those who are in the winter of their lives. That night, the Winter Wolf comes for Cora's grandfather, but the young girl manages to trap it. What follows is a magical journey through the mysteries of time, as Cora learns how far one can go for the sake of someone they love.

Chicago On Stage - Highly Recommended

"...Robinsonís hand is clear in that creation, as well as in the clockwork-like movements that the actors employ as they are stuck in the changeless world that Coraís wish creates. Directing a cast mostly comprised of veterans of the first production of this play (everyone except Goforth), she keeps its lovely warmth intact and its rhythms carefully preserved. This is not a particularly deep play, but it is very personal and emotionally satisfying. About the only thing not satisfying here is the fact that only a handful of people were in the audience when I saw it. This is a tiny theatre putting on a really sweet play about family and love in a season dedicated to those things; it should be sold out every night. Where are you, Chicago? Check out The Winter Wolf; it will bring a holiday smile to your face."
