‘Retold. A Fairytale Festival without the happily ever after’ is very special to watch,
something unusual and different from your average fringe show.

As if by a Stair
Fairytales have always fascinated us and captivated audiences from young to old. Many themes are far beyond being just children’s stories and often the moral of the story can be quite sinister.
Some fairytales have origins reaching back thousands of years and over time they have constantly been changed and updated, showing how in their very core they deal with fundamental topics and issues of humanity and human nature.
Continuing the practice of adapting fairytales in order to expose and criticise stories of the contemporary world, RETOLD presents new, mature and provocative takes on three of them.
Aimed at an adult audience, although suitable for ages 12 and over.
