Collected Grimm Tales

By Carol Ann Duffy & Tim Supple
Directed by Tamara Searle

Second year Bachelor of Arts Acting students present folk tales adapted by Carol Ann Duffy and dramatised by Tim Supple. These are the original cautionary tales as they were told to the Grimm brothers.  They are distinctively infused with their oral storytelling history: they possess elaborate symbology and the residue of multiple retellings.   In the Collected Grimm Tales beasts transform, villains are absurd and sinister, parents are imperfect or absent, and heroines undertake epic journeys to save their loves.
