Fairytales for Grown-ups: The Three Snake Leaves - Live stream ticket

Live stream
Snake leaves

Streamed live from the Woodshed Theatre in Oxford, the Crick Crack Club presents fairytales for Grown-ups from the Grimm forest, with storytellers Sally Pomme, Clayton, Ben Haggarty and Hugh Lupton and music by Sheema Mukherjee

A father and daughter sit beside a fire in the snow; a bride is bricked up in a tower; marvels gleam in the half-light, and the mysterious snake leaves bring transformation.

The dark and unexpected pasts of three dishevelled travellers lost in a forest are untangled in this subtle and beguiling fairytale for grown-ups. Seamlessly interweaving a dozen of Grimm’s lesser-known stories, legendary contemporary storytellers, Ben Haggarty, Hugh Lupton, and Sally Pomme Clayton, and extraordinary musician Sheema Mukherjee, embark on an enchanted search for truth.

Shot through with evocative music and luminous beauty, this is a show about what it is to be a human.
