LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD & OTHER LOST GIRLS, by NELL PHOENIX

What did the Wolf do to Granny?
What did Little Red do to the Wolf?
What did Little Red do to Granny?!

The fairytale world is littered with girls who are lost or mislaid, and very few are as innocent as you might imagine. Nell Phoenix strays from the path in search of those who have played in the woods, forgotten the rules, and should have at least had an inkling that something was likely to go horribly wrong.

‘…kooky, creative and off the wall’ **** EVERYTHING THEATRE

THE BLACKSMITH AT THE BRIDGE OF BONES, by BEN HAGGARTY

If knowledge equals power, then what is the responsibility of such power?

Allow Ben Haggarty to lure you into a full-blooded fairytale for grown-ups. This dark story of power, knowledge, alchemy and male initiation, explores that enduring relationship between a teacher and an apprentice. Fierce, unflinching and beautiful by turn… here rules aren't broken lightly.

'Everything a fairy tale should be… unmissable' **** EVERYTHING THEATRE

'The doyen of Storytellers' **** REMOTE GOAT
