Grimm Tales offers a contemporary take on the much loved fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, revealing the dark and mischievous side of the original stories. Wit and enchantment combine to bring to life the colourful and strange world of our imagination.
Featuring The Musicians of Bremen, Ashputtel (Cinderella), The Mouse, the Bird and the Sausage, The Golden Goose, The Hare and the Hedgehog, Hansel and Gretel, The Magic Table, The Gold-Donkey and the Cudgel in the Sack, Grimm Tales takes you to a world where the forests are full of danger and adventure, fortunes can be found in the most unexpected places and families struggle to keep the wolf at bay.
This is storytelling with spirit and energy, as Grimm Tales explores our childhood fears, bringing a new twist and more than a hint of black comedy to some of the most famous stories ever written.
