The play synopsis (courtesy PlayScripts): The fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm are turned on their heads in this fast-paced, rollicking ride as two narrators and several actors attempt to combine all 209 stories ranging from classics like Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel to more bizarre, obscure stories like The Devil's Grandmother and The Girl Without Hands.
A wild, free-form comedy with lots of audience participation and madcap fun. Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)
