The Brothers Grimm are trying to edit the darkness out of old stories. But as they do so, the voices of the women who created these tales are lost… What will be saved and what will be forgotten?

Cannibalism, werewolf trials, deceit, and murder: the Brothers Grimm and their friend Marie act out the dark, original versions. Arguments, ego and politics threaten the anthology and their friendship at every turn.

This critically acclaimed production explores the origins of classic fairy tales through an exciting blend of physical and object theatre, storytelling, and classic theatre techniques.
