Fairytales Gone Bad: Zombie-rella / Blood-red Hood (2016-Present)

White Horse Road
9 Jan 2016 -
Age range: 6+

Performance poet Joseph Coelho, winner of the 2015 Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award, unravels familiar fairytales to create fresh contemporary classics in an enchanting performance for young and old alike.

A mysterious vaudeville storyteller with a magical top-hat and coat unwinds the true stories behind the happily ever afters; which are maybe not as charming as you remember!

Discover the true tale of Cinderella, where she dies and becomes a zombie and falls in love with a vampire prince. And of course, there’s the true tale of Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf-hunter who never leaves her home without her shield, axe and blood-red stained cloak.

A Joseph Coelho production touring nationally with Half Moon Presents.
