In this play, Red Writing Hood does not like the way her fairy tale ends, so she decides to change the events of her own fairy tale by rewriting them. This worked out so well for her, she decides to change the events in other fairy tales as well, and this has a domino effect for the characters in the stories and the FBI (Fairytale Believers, Incorporated) comes in to correct the changes and informs Red that fairy tales should be left alone.
