Set on the eve of Peter’s death, a wolf comes to visit one last time. Over the course of the night and through flashbacks and memory, Peter and the Wolf trace the lives they have lived from the day of their births, to the day they met and Peter let the Wolf go rather than take him to the hell of the zoo. The play looks at the final moments of one’s life while celebrating the fullness of each heartbeat. It draws a parallel between a man and a regal animal, illuminating lives that are not so different, the struggle to grow and change in the face of rigid society and the harshness of life. (
