Tales of the Brothers Grimm
Author(s): Hannah McPake
Company: Sherman Theatre
It’s Christmas Eve and in the Grimmdom (home of the Brothers Grimm) Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel are waiting for their Happy Ever After. Meanwhile in Cardiff, 1913, it’s a wild stormy night. Stevie is waiting to find her story, while her mum knows exactly what story she’s living, fighting with the Suffragettes for the right to vote.
When the storm transports Stevie to the Grimmdom, things begin to change. None of the stories are happening like they’re supposed to. The Big Bad Wolf has escaped. Prince Charming is missing. And the Snow Queen has turned up, but wait, wasn’t she written by Hans Christian Andersen? Will everything end in disaster? Or, can Stevie save the Grimmdom and find her own Once Upon a Time?
