“In olden times, when wishes still helped….”

Step into the woods, but don’t forget the breadcrumbs. Watch out for the magic mirror. And never wake a sleeping giant.

This summer at the Octagon we’ll be exploring a selection of twisted tales that are a little bit Grimmer than you might remember.

Join us for a fun-filled theatre making experience inspired by tales from the Brothers Grimm. You’ll spend two weeks creating, collaborating and developing your storytelling skills to make a short performance to share with friends and family.
