    The Hunters Grimm

    The famous Brothers Grimm need your help. They need stories, more stories than they can gather themselves. You must search the dark streets of Deptford for new tales where you may come across an anarchic frog, comfort a desperate prince, dance with the musicians of Bremen and participate in an adventure to cure nightmares. Along the way, you’ll hear stories of love, death, poverty, longing and sausages.

    'It’s a show that brings a smile to the face as it celebrates the power of storytelling' Lyn Gardner, The Guardian


    'This warm-hearted show pulls together the loose, chaotic leaves of its tales with a lovably schmaltzy ending.' ★★★★ Alice Saville, Exeunt


    A Promenade Performance by Teatro Vivo

    Wanted: Fearless Story Hunters for a life saving mission...


    The Hunters Grimm will be a theatrical journey for grown-ups inspired by the Household Tales of the Brothers Grimm and is for the brave and curious only! 

    All hunters are requested to wear a stout pair of boots and clothes suited to the climate for who knows where these stories will take us...

    Albany Associate Artists, Teatro Vivo, were last seen in Deptford where gods and goddesses took to the streets in their interpretation of The Odyssey. Don’t miss their new interactive adventure.


    This will be a promenade production visiting a variety of locations in Deptford, as such accessibility cannot be guaranteed, but we will do our best to accommodate you. Please contact our Box Office if you do have access requirements. 


    There will be a post show Q&A hosted by Teatro Vivo in the café following the performance on Thursday 6 November.



    Don't start your hunt on an empty stomach. Deli X are offering a special pre-theatre menu to The Hunters Grimm adventurers.
