Show Information


Playful, mischievous and deliciously scary fairy tales for all the family. In the dead of night the moon is hiding behind a cloud, and deep in the dark, dark forest two children are lost, scared and hungry… A young girl, exhausted with work and deprived of a bed, lies down in the dirty ashes. Her stepsisters, with hearts as ugly as thorns, snigger at her.

Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy and the award-winning Theatr Iolo bring you the magical stories of the Brothers Grimm, including Ashputtel (the original Cinderella story) and Hansel & Gretel.

"This is a magical show with a healthy sprinkle of fear and gory squelch, and plenty to spark the imaginations of young and old."
The Stage

"‘Best show ever, and see, all it takes is a little bit of imagination.’ That was the sweeping opinion of my seven year old daughter Elena, after being variously scared witless, enraptured and entranced by Theatr Iolo’s take on these entirely Grimm stories."
Wales Arts Review

"This is children’s theatre at its best and it comes highly recommended."
