The Grimm Sisters

Scratchworks TheatreBooking Info

Discover a joyful and mischievous interruption to the everyday in this new short-play from Scratchworks Theatre...

Would you like to hear a remarkable story?
We promise it will only be a little bit gory...
We are two sisters, The Sisters Grimm.
One is quite clever and one is quite… musical.
Our tales are greater than any others,
But they were stolen by our beastly brothers!
Now we must journey to fix their lies,
Or else the birds will pluck out our eyes!

You know the Brothers Grimm? The famous storytellers - or story stealers more like! Brunhilda and Mitzi were the true brains behind the books, but thanks to a treacherous father, a nasty curse and a great big dollop of bad luck, you’ve probably never heard of them. 

Well this summer, The Grimm Sisters are here to set the record straight. Join them on the journey as they tell their twisted tales with a marvellous mix of comedy, singing & live music. Dive headfirst into their weird world of poisonous parents, courageous quests & a magical frog called Jeremy (Jeremy is not to be trusted). 

Keep your mind sharp and your guts gory, because in the blink of an eyelash, you might find yourself within the story… 

Two actors from Scratchworks Theatre Company will lead you outdoors to discover a joyful and mischievous interruption to the everyday. Following on from their popular comedies of ‘Great Train Robbery’ and ‘WOMANS’, The Grimm Sisters is a brand new show for 2021.  

Running time: 60mins no interval
Suitable for ages 6+
