February 3rd - 6th 2018 (Ended)

Cannibalism, werewolf trials, deceit, and murder. In a tiny study in Kassel, Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm and Marie Hassenpflug are poring over transcripts of old wives’ tales, trying to remove the horror from them to create an anthology of stories for children.  Jacob wants a collection of moral tales full of folk culture references, Wilhelm is happy as long as the storyline is good, and Marie would really like it if the Brothers could be nicer to the female characters! Join them for a night of fairy tales as you’ve never heard them before…
