Grimm Tales for Fragile Times and Broken People

Online via Zoom


Creation Theatre presents a deliciously dark and twisted set of fairy tales, online via Zoom, performed by a five-strong cast.

Grimm Tales for Fragile Times and Broken People brings a feast of storytelling inspired by the fairy tales from Brothers Grimm.  Set in a distorted world of hand-crafted toy theatres, reinvented and reinterpreted for the digital stage, this production features a collection of gruesome fairy tales including The Juniper Tree, The Moon, and Godfather Death.

This assemblage of macabre tales will creep through trapdoors, lurk in the shadows and transform your living room into a nightmarish fairytale world.  Join us online as we trawl through woodlands to escape the grasps of some of the Grimm Brothers most notorious nasties.

The first in a series of productions by Creation Theatre Rep Company. Shows until 14 February will be performed live in Zoom. Performances after 24 February will be a live experience of a recorded show. The audience will be live participants sharing the experience together, watching a stream of a previously recorded live show.

Suitable for ages 12+. This production involves themes of death which may be upsetting to some audience members.
