I went to see this yesterday with my daughter (10) and we both loved it! All the actors were brilliant and the tales were a mix of some we recognised and some we didn’t but were all equally entertaining. My daughter loved the lighthearted but slightly darker than normal fairy tales and laughed a lot throughout. Would recommend it for adults and children especially slightly older ones. 5*

A highly entertaining production, depicting a series of gothic styled fairy tales, with dark humour and excellent characterisations. Excellent use of movement and props to create the scenes. Definitely worth seeing and a very enjoyable 55 minutes, well spent. Would recommend for adults and older children. 5*

Having been at the festival all week I have sampled many productions and I particularly enjoyed this one. The age of the cast did reflect a little in the quality of the storytelling; the costumes and makeup were effective; little else was used in the way of props. I found it entertaining and amusing and definitely didn’t regret the hours spent on it. The only stand out performances were the girl with the very blonde hair and a couple of the boys who you could see had real talent and not just there for a jolly. All in all a lunchtime well spent.
