The Grandmothers Grimm.jpg

Cannibalism, werewolf trials, deceit, and murder... Marie Hassenpflug and the Brothers Grimm are editing the darkness out of old stories. Little by little, the voices of the storytellers who created the tales are eroded away. 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.

This long-running, critically acclaimed production from Some Kind of Theatre will tour Summer and Autumn 2023.


This show is also available for Theatre On The Sofa performances.
