Review from Luv Theatre

A diverse group of local playwrights provide a modern spin on some of the Grimm Fairy Tales.

Review from ArtF.

Need to see twice to appreciate. Not that funny or dramatic. But definitely thought provoking. Great acting and set.

Review from Goldstar Member

Acting was superb. The writing, too. Very interesting and provocative perspectives on the Grimm stories. Most of the plays included strong themes about race and racism, power in sexual relationships, ugly Americans. Great surprises.
