  Wolves at The Frontier


The Frontier
1106 W Thorndale Chicago

Two men's folie à deux overtakes their small apartment and spills out onto city streets. When ex-boyfriend Jack brings a strange man home to woodland-obsessed Ben's apartment, the Narrator can barely keep a lid on the looming violence. This "deconstruction" of the Little Red Riding Hood story is a darkly comic, predatory fairy tale for adults that explores the conflation of sex and fear in modern culture, the comfort of lava lamps, and the dangers of a handy axe.

Chicago On Stage - Somewhat Recommended

"...Through all of this tension, Alexandria Mormon’s narrator keeps cutting in with commentary that is at times merely narrative and at other times sharp and funny. As the teller of the story, she is at least nominally “in control,” and—though she does interact with the characters directly at times—maintains enough distance to allow them to make their own decisions. Mormon is a friendly, down-to-earth presence in this brief little tale of horror, as well as a breath of fresh air when things get too intense. But even an omniscient narrator can’t keep the darkness out of a disturbed mind."
