Fairytales for Grown-ups from the Grimm Forest

Performance storytelling
Stories: Hugh Lupton, Ben Haggarty, Sally Pomme Clayton
Music: Gillian Stevens, Dylan Fowler

The forest is a place where marvels gleam in the shadows and the mysterious snake leaves bring transformation… The dark pasts of three dishevelled travellers lost in a forest are untangled in this seamless and beguiling performance of grown-up fairytale and myth. Moving, cruel and humorous by turn – enter an enchanted search for truth.
200 years after the Brothers Grimm’s first collection of fairytales was published, three masters of contemporary storytelling conjure a primal, metaphorical world, shot through with evocative music.

‘A wonderful, intricate piece about storytelling and the possibilities of redemption.’ Independent
