It is just after the election in Never-Never Land and the peasants grow restless whilst the leaders drink champagne on expenses…sound like ground hog day? It is. Pauline Heath has created a rich fairytale, a complete fantasy of horrors which are too far-fetched to believe, delivered as stand-up theatre. 21st Century storytelling, using projections and original illustrations, some of Grimm’s favourites appear in this cautionary tale of modern life if you’re poor.
