Once Upon a Time…

Date: Wednesday, Sep 25 - Saturday, Sep 28
Venue: Tobacco Factory Theatres: Spielman Theatre

Tobaco Factory Theatres welcomes back Gonzo Moose (What The Dickens, I’m An Aristocrat Get Me Out Of Here) with a fairy tale adventure bursting with their trademark clowning, absurd jokes, live music and magical illusion.

“It was cold. It was dark. It was almost certainly snowing…

“Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are about to publish the final volume of what will become the greatest ever collection of fairy tales.

“But on the eve of their greatest triumph, a shadowy figure from their past lets it be known he intends to collect an old debt.

“Now their sister Lotte has to travel deep into the Fairy Tale Kingdom and confront a great evil in order to save her beloved older brothers.

“Is our heroine in grave danger? Yes.

“From what? Lots of things.

“Will she make it back alive? We can’t tell you.”

Sept 25-28, 7pm, from £12. 105 mins incl interval, ages 7+.
