A gangster-fairy, an unlikely hero, a rhyming witch and a crying princess are some of the characters unleashed in this fast-paced play. Comedy, heroics, witches, magic, goodness, love, loss and healing are explored using eight stories of the Brothers Grimm. Meet with villagers wise and silly (The Golden Goose), industrious (Clever Alice), lazy (The Shreds) and in love (Joringel and Jorinda), and discover the richness of those who reside in the village of the Brothers Grimm.
