A Pocket Full Of Grimms (Story Pocket Theatre)

A Pocketful of Grimms

When we heard that Story Pocket Theatre were headed back to Edinburgh for Fringe 2015 we were delighted, and made an immediate plan to make a bee line for this show, after seeing and loving their brilliant ‘Arabian Nights’ last year. The company did not disappoint; they’ve returned with a selection of Grimm’s tales that are beautifully scripted, intelligently connected, and skilfully performed against the backdrop of an ever-changing, cleverly constructed set. It’s a perfectly judged show, pitched just at the right level to appeal to everyone in the room regardless of age, and entirely cements our conviction that this talented group are producing some of the best children’s theatre we have seen.

Gilded Balloon, until 31 Aug.
