The Stealer of Stories
Sunday 17 July
@ Wellington Square Gardens
As part of Offbeat Festival
In a distant land, a long time ago before electricity and espresso, stood a little town called Harmony.
The self sustaining town lived peacefully and never was a place more joyous. But Grimm, an unhappy soul steals all the story books he can find, locking them away from curious eyes.
One stormy night Grimm is visited by spirits of the story book characters he holds captive, and learning the importance of simply kindness his cold heart melts away.
This performance is a work in progress.
