About this show

GRIMM TALES, written by the Brothers Grimm and adapted by Carol Ann Duffy, was originally dramatized by Tim Supple for the Young Vic Company. This brilliant collaboration by an acclaimed poet and director caused a sensation at its 1996 London premiere, when one reviewer wrote "[it's] the best demonstration of the living power of theatre all year ... the children squealed in delight and so did I." Grimms' fairy tales have been childhood favorites worldwide for nearly 200 years. With unbridled imagination, mystery and wonder, each has a lesson to teach. Folk tales like Hansel and Gretel, The Golden Goose and others will enchant the entire family.
