Cork Arts Theatre | October 25 – 31, 2008
The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil’s Grandmother and The Girl without Hands. A wild, free-form comedy with lots of witches, goblins and more princes than you can shake a stick at; it is simply bursting at the seams with audience participation and madcap fun. If you like The Reduced Shakespeare Co. you will love this!
This fantastic show is brought to you by Chattyboo Productions, The people who brought you “The Importance of Being Earnest”, “Moll”, and “The Children of Lir”. With a wonderful cast which includes Adrian Scanlan, Angela Newman, Annette Roche, Marie O’Donovan and Ali Keane under the direction of George Hanover, with brilliant costumes and creative set, this show promises to be the ultimate Halloween treat.
