A play by Joseph Coelho

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.

After the show there will be a chance to meet Joseph and purchase signed copies of his books, as well as talk about his work.
