Fairy Tale Theatre – 18 & Over (J Michael Feldman & Lindsey Bowden)

Fairy Tale Theatre

In this salacious story session for adults, the fairytales we were told as children are adapted into narratives such as ‘The Tale Of The Bipolar Bear and the Co-Dependent Eskimo’, all of which are outrageous and glorious in equal measure. The cast are a whirlwind of energy, speeding us through the stories using a combination of costume and puppetry, while characters we know and love, such as Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother, are given a delightfully silly madcap makeover. There are some important ideas included – about how we live as adults – but first and foremost ‘Fairy Tale Theatre: 18 & Over’ is a constantly hilarious and ludicrous experience.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 30 Aug.
