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 and 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 Reader - Highly Recommended

"...Speaking of wonderment, we were informed during an opening-night curtain speech that Otherworld Theatre is the only theatrical venue "in the world" dedicated to fantasy and science fiction, making me quite intrigued to see the company's enormous compendium of every performance space on the planet."

Windy City Times - Highly Recommended

"...These fanciful elements serve to pique our imaginations in preparation for a thrilling allegory, directed at brisk pace by Lauren Nicole Fields and narrated with the assistance of a shadow-puppet scroll ( called a "crankie" in the trade ), a richly textured soundscape, and a title character represented by a Bunraku wolf mannequin operated and voiced by Shariba Rivers with menacing authority and wry humor matching that of our intrepid opponent, played with resolute audacity by Molly Southgate. When you applaud at the end of the performance, don't forget to howl, too."
