Kirsty Housley directs a deliciously gruesome selection from Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales, in this acclaimed adapta¬tion by Philip Wilson, re-told and re-worked for the whole family.
Enter a perilous world of murderous step-mothers, careless parents and fearless children. Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales are classic fairy tales, distilled from centuries of storytelling, timeworn but honed for the next generation to discover anew. This collection of stories, some familiar and some not so, takes us to the very heart of imagination and speaks of the things it finds there, fear, courage, compassion and wonder.
Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales is at the Unicorn Theatre Tuesday 13 November 2018 – Sunday 6 January 2019.
