More macabre than mistletoe, more twisted than Tangled, more freezing than Frozen

Masterful, engaging storytelling for dark wintry evenings, but keep your light on when you go to bed after…

Molly Pollard, Everything Theatre, October 2020

This non-professional production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

What is that, trailing your footsteps, breathing softly down your neck?

Rediscover the magic and wonder of the original Grimm Tales, retold by master-storyteller Philip Pullman. In this stage version by Philip Wilson, you’ll meet the familiar characters – Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel – and some unexpected ones too, such as the remarkable Thousandfurs.

Full of deliciously dark twists and turns, the tales come to life in all their glittering, macabre brilliance – a delight for children and adults alike.

These Grimm Tales were first performed as immersive storytelling experiences underneath Shoreditch Town Hall, London, in 2014, and Bargehouse on the South Bank in 2015.
