Description

As the Autumn nights close in, what could be better than settling down to see Carol Ann Duffy’s vibrant retellings of classic tales from the brothers Grimm? At a time when fairy stories all too often come watered-down and Disneyfied, this show refreshingly presents favourites such as Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin, and Hansel & Gretel in all of their original gory glory. Spooks, witches, and evil goblins abound in this richly textured journey down the winding path into the woods.

Originally adapted by the Poet Laureate for the Young Vic in 1994 and dramatised by Tim Supple, our talented Young People's Theatre join our adult members to recapture all of the dramatic energy and imaginative power that lies at the heart of these hauntingly magical stories.

Suitable for everyone aged 8 and over.

"imaginative, clever & carefully thought out ... great viewing as the nights begin to draw in" - Break A Leg
