SNOW, GLASS, APPLES (September 2012)


By Neil Gaiman.

“Lies and half-truths fall like snow, covering the things that I remember, the things I saw.”

From the same folks who brought Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog to Capricon 2011 comes a new, spellbinding theatrical double-bill, only at Chicon 7:

Snow, Glass, Apples
Troll Bridge
Adapted from Neil Gaiman’s short stories

Gaze into the mirror alongside the wicked stepmother; peer out from under the bridge with a monstrous troll. In two tales both beautiful and macabre, Neil Gaiman dissects the disturbing reasons for Snow White’s snow-white skin and blood-red lips, and replaces the Three Billy Goats Gruff with a feckless boy named Jack who carelessly trip-traps over the fateful bridge.

And so, we invite our mature audience to journey through these two dark fairy tales with our players. We promise to lead you home at the end; however, we cannot promise to return you unchanged. But truthfully, would you wish it any other way?
