This collection of twelve short plays are linked together by two narrators playing the parts of Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm telling their tales.  There is a mixture of well-known much-loved tales and some new treasures that are often forgotten.  The stories are kept as close to the original tales as possible, often using much of the same language in order to capture the magic and charm of these traditional stories.  It is possible to leave out some of the tales or tell them in a different order according to cast requirements.  

The Grimm Tales adapted for the stage by Lucy Driver
