Q&A: Wolfy from Big Bad Wolf
Windmall Theatre Co’s production of the Big Bad Wolf is coming to Auckland for the second week of the July school holidays. What is the Bad Wolf really like? Here is what he had to say:
What inspired you to become vegetarian or has this always been your way of life?
I’ve always been a vegematarian, ever since I was a little baby wolf. My mumma Grand Wolfmaster used to try and make me eat rabbits and other animals, but I’d rather be their friend!
Describe your ideal vegetarian dish in three words?
Green, leafy and delicious.
Fellow vegetarians (fictional or real) who inspire you.
My favourite famous vegetarian is Paul McCartney. Listening to The Beatles is soothing for my big pointy ears, and fills my mind with lovely thoughts.
If a vegetable could speak a thousand words, which vegetable would speak the most to you?
Broccoli! It speaks to me all the time. We recite our favourite poetry together.
As a busy wolf on the move, what are your tips for keeping your lunches fresh?
To keep my lunches fresh I put them in my special lunch box which I keep in my secret tree trunk. It stays nice and cool in there!
Any favourite vegetarian / vegan restaurants you would recommend from your part of the woods?
My favourite stop for vegematarian friendly food in Australia is Lord of the Fries. Their burgers make me want to HOWWWWWL! There’s even a store in Auckland now.
What is something you wish people knew about you?
I wish people knew that my big pointy teeth aren’t for eating people or bunnies!
My favourite poet is Spike Milligan! His poems always make me chuckle.
What do you love the most about being vegetarian?
My favourite thing about being a vegematarian is that I can eat lots of delicious food, but still be best friends with Mr Rabbit and Heidi Hood!
BIG BAD WOLF is on from July 18 to July 21 2018 at the Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna. For more information and tickets see: www.aucklandlive.co.nz
