About this show

This is not a fairy tale from your childhood. Sex, drugs, and techno music permeate this bittersweet, adult fairy tale where "happily ever after" may not be what it seems. Sheila Callaghan's imaginative and lyrical retelling of the British fairy tale, Kate Crackernuts, invites audiences into a magical realm where reality and fantasy collide. Once upon a time Kate lived with her "unendurably beautiful" sister Anne. Their world is turned upside down when Anne's exquisite head mysteriously transforms into a sheep's head. Kate sets off on a daring quest to restore her sister's beauty but finds much more than she ever imagined possible. Kate Crackernuts: A Convoluted Tale offers a world where a headless sheep philosophizes and a pill popping baby swears like a sailor.
