F*cked Up Fairytales

Sold out

The dark, the twisted, the sensual and the obscene.

London based storytelling and music group The Embers Collective present an evening of fairytales and songs simply not fit for children. From a cannibal mum, to a re-telling of Sleeping Beauty fit for the post #metoo world, you’ll never look at Disney’s versions in the same way again.

Come immerse yourself in The Embers Collective’s distinctive take on storytelling- tales of old with a modern twist, all woven into an ever-evolving musical landscape.

This event has both seated and standing options. To ensure you get a seat please arrive early – doors open from 7pm.

There must be magic in the atmosphere By Benedict Lombe

Benedict Lombe from our Emerging Writers Group writes about diasporic experience. It’s 3am. I’m sitting in my room wolfing down a pack of Doritos and thinking about the night I just had. I’m also thinking – quite intensely – about who decided we needed more than one flavour of Doritos? Bro, you hit the jackpot…

Rachael Merry: The BSL access is ‘rooted in the telling of the story’

Zia Ahmed’s tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you have is keen to cross boundaries. Vital to the three-hander is Rachael Merry, who uses BSL interpretation to convey the poetic beauty of Ahmed’s language . Rachael talks to us about the show, language, and the role of accessibility…
