The Dulwich Players present Grimm Tales for Young and Old by Philip Pullman, which has been adapted for the stage by Philip Wilson. With original music by Paul Grimwood & lyrics by Gill Daly, the play will be performed in the gardens of Bell House, 27 College Road, Dulwich, SE21 7BG.

Before Roald Dahl there were the Brothers Grimm!  And now there is an opportunity to rediscover the magic and wonder of the original Grimm Tales, retold by the master storyteller Philip Pullman. The audience will be taken on both a fictional and actual journal, meeting along the way some familiar characters such as  Rapunzel, and some surprising ones too,  such as Hans-My-Hedgehog,  Faithful Johannes and the remarkable Thousandfurs, each  tale being  full of delicious and unexpectedly dark twists and turns.
