The Crick Crack Club present Ben Haggarty & Sherry Robinson in Fairytales for Grown-ups: Grim Grimms

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, Grim Grimms blends the spontaneity and physicality of a master storyteller with Sherry Robinson's exquisite music.

Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty. Music composed and performed by Sherry Robinson (harp, accordion, toy piano).

'This is the fresh dose of magic you need in your life'.
