the not so grimm twins

Meet world-famous twins Jake and Will Grimm, as they tumble from their magical wagon brimful of stories collected from every inch of the world - from Rapunzel to Red Riding Hood. Behold as your favourite tales are re- spun and woven together by our storytelling duo...oh, and their little sister Lottie too! But sometimes even familiar fairytales can take a turn for the (f)unexpected, and our heroes will need all the help they can get to defeat the creatures of their own creation and save the world!


Performed by three actor-musicians, featuring original live music and puppetry, this production is suitable for the whole family, though some elements may be best enjoyed by those aged 4 and above.
