A Pretty Grimm Tale

Thursday 7 - Saturday 9 December 2017
7.30pm
St. Nicholas Hall

Book now

Ostensibly set in an office, the characters find themselves compelled to tell fairy tales, with each story reflecting the personality and interests of the narrator.  From a very traditional, two-dimensional Rapunzel to a musical of The Frog Prince to a dark beat poem version of Red Riding Hood, the tales are brought vividly to life, in sharp contrast to the mundane setting of the office.  The play came out of conversations about fairy tales, and our frustration with their various flaws, and explores the sexism, lack of logic and absence of common sense shown by many of the characters, in an often light-hearted manner.  In a break with tradition, A Pretty Grimm Tale was written entirely in-house, with inspiration and contributions from the whole Drama Department, as well as roles devised for or adapted to suit individual students who impressed in the early auditions.
