Half Moon Presents: Fairytales Gone Bad

A Joseph Coelho Production


Fairytales Gone Bad:  Grannylocks / The Monstrous Duckling

Join performance poet Joseph Coelho, winner of the 2015 CLiPPA award (Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award), as he unravels familiar fairytales to create fresh contemporary classics in an enchanting performance for young and old alike.

A father returns home with a magical cloak. A cloak that hides a story…

Join our poetic storyteller as he unwinds the true stories behind the happily ever afters and discover they’re maybe not as charming as you remember!

Did you know that the ugly duckling was never ugly? He was truly monstrous! Or that Goldilocks was never a tale about a little girl. It was always a tale about a granny; A mean, old, thieving granny who has plans for something quite nasty.

This show is part of the Big Imaginations Children and Family Festival 19 October – 5 November 2017
