THE GRANDMOTHERS GRIMM
London - Buxton - Edinburgh - Summer 2019 (ENDED)
Cannibalism, werewolf trials, deceit, and murder: Marie Hassenpflug and the Brothers Grimm are trying to edit the darkness out of old stories. But as they do so, the voices of the women who created these tales are lost… What will be saved and what will be forgotten?
The Grandmothers Grimm explores women’s role in the creation of the Brothers Grimm’s famous anthology. Discover a night of folk and fairy tales as you've never heard them before.
Edinburgh literary theatre company, Some Kind of Theatre are proud to bring The Grandmothers Grimm to the Buxton Fringe, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Southwark Playhouse, London.
