Scratchworks Theatre Company is an award-winning physical ensemble that creates playful, accessible theatre. Following acclaimed tours with ‘The Great Train Robbery’ and ‘Womans (Like Romans but with a W)’, this energetic troupe of actors head back to Dorset this summer, leading Artsreach audiences outdoors to discover a joyful and mischievous interruption to the everyday with ‘The Grimm Sisters’, a brand-new show for 2021. Keep your mind sharp and your guts gory, because in the blink of an eyelash, you might find yourself within the story…
Would you like to hear a remarkable story?
We promise it will only be a little bit gory…
We are two sisters, The Sisters Grimm.
One is quite clever and one is quite… musical.
Our tales are greater than any others,
But they were stolen by our beastly brothers!
Now we must journey to fix their lies,
Or else the birds will pluck out our eyes!
You know the Brothers Grimm? The famous storytellers – or story stealers more like! Brunhilda and Mitzi were the true brains behind the books, but thanks to a treacherous father, a nasty curse and a great big dollop of bad luck, you’ve probably never heard of them. Well, this summer, The Grimm Sisters are here to set the record straight! Join them on the journey as they tell their twisted tales with a marvellous mix of comedy, singing & live music. Dive headfirst into their weird world of poisonous parents, courageous quests and a magical frog called Jeremy (Jeremy is not to be trusted).
Founded in Exeter in 2013, Scratchworks is an all-female ensemble from Devon. Using diverse theatrical styles, they create original stories with a unique blend of live music, dynamic movement and farcical comedy. The company has enjoyed sell-out shows at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Exeter’s Bike Shed Theatre and Bristol’s Wardrobe Theatre, gathering a loyal following throughout the South West. Catch The Grimm Sisters outdoors at Gillingham School at 6pm on Friday 16 July, and at 2pm and 5pm at The Blandford School on Saturday 17 July. Full details about these event are available online.
