Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty. Music by Sherry Robinson

Sometimes the cost of a broken promise is to pay with your life…

Gothic, stark and beguiling – Ben Haggarty ventures into the wild side of fairytale to haul four lesser-known Grimm tales out of the nursery and back into the dark and full-blooded realm of fairytales for grown-ups. This is brimful of forbidden doors, magical transformations, betrayal, comeuppance, and talking skulls.

The fairytales collected by the Brothers Grimm are like half remembered rituals – full of vitality, meaning and inklings, the importance of which remain tantalisingly out of reach.

Fresh, hypnotic, and sometimes downright comedic, Ben Haggarty blends the spontaneity and physicality of a master storyteller with Sherry Robinson’s exquisite cello, harp and accordion.
