Grimm’s Fairer Tales


With Wolves, Witches and Goblins, the story unfolds as the audience is invited to become part of the drama. The Brothers Grimm collected their classic tales over 200 years ago. Today, interactive storyteller Eden Ballantyne has reimagined them for a contemporary audience. Maybe Little Red Riding Hood won’t have to wait for the woodcutter to save her? There may be a house of gingerbread, but what else could be waiting in the woods? “Fantastic stories which engage both children and adults.” (Royal Armouries)

 “A must see for anyone with children, especially those who enjoy performing!” One4review Aug 2018

Review on Edfringe Website Kat Wilsher August 2018

Absolutely fantastic show which I enjoyed as much as my children did. Bought tickets on a whim to get out of the rain and we were so so glad we did. Brilliant storytelling and so funny as well. My seven year old got to be a modern, knife wielding Red Riding hood which she loved! Definitely a must see for anyone with children.
