Grim and Gruesome Grimm

Grim and Gruesome Grimm

adapted by Mrs. Evelyn Merritt from Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

The original Grimm’s Fairy Tales are far from sweet, naive, innocent, syrupy, or charming. They are not typical at all: Death. Cannibalism. Death. Burial alive. Death. Burned alive. Death. Kidnapping. Death. Beheading and body parts. Death. These tales are not for the faint of heart! Join us for a grim and gruesome stroll through dark forests and nasty characters. Don’t keep a body count.

A playful and theatrical adaptation with flexible genders, flexible cast size, and two one act lengths.
