Grimm Tales for Young and Old at Shoreditch Town Hall
Valerie Coward presents the world debut of Grimm Tales for Young and Old: An Immersive Fairytale by Philip Pullman, adapted and directed by Philip Wilson, at Shoreditch Town Hall, a fringe venue in east London, from 14 March to 24 April 2014.
Costume and set design by Tom Rogers, lighting by Howard Hudson, sound by Richard Hammarton.
Something strange is brewing in the labyrinth beneath Shoreditch Town Hall: A witch surrounded by golden hair blinds a prince. Seven beds are left unmade. An old woman and her granddaughter gasp for air as they clamber from the entrails of a wolf. A snake slithers toward a soldier buried alive in his wife’s tomb. A father unknowingly sucks flesh from the bones of his missing son.
The audience will be able to physically interact with the series’ characters, including Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel.
