Fairytales for Grown Ups: Grim Grimms

October 28, 2015 @ 7:30 PM - 11:00 PM

| £10
Crick Crack Club presents:
Fairytales for Grown-ups: Grim Grimms – Three drops of Blood
Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty, with music by Sherry Robinson
Sometimes the cost of a broken promise is to pay with your life…
Gothic, stark, beguiling and beautiful – Ben Haggarty ventures into the wild side of fairytale to haul four lesser-known Grimm tales back out of the nursery and into the dark and full-blooded realm of fairytales for grown-ups. This is brimful of forbidden doors, magical transformations, betrayal, comeuppance, and talking skulls.

Come and make a deal with the devil….what could possible go wrong?!

The fairytales collected by the Brothers Grimm are like half remembered rituals – full of vitality, meaning and inklings, the importance of which remain tantalisingly out of reach. Fresh, hypnotic, and sometimes downright comedic, Ben Haggarty blends the spontaneity and physicality of a master storyteller with Sherry Robinson’s exquisite cello, harp and accordion.
