The Juniper Tree


The Juniper Tree

Set in a disused medical hospital the audience is invited in to smash an apple, become part of the town and wander freely to explore a deconstructed version of the Brothers Grimm story. The non-linear narrative takes you on a journey through hunger, fear, love, death and ultimately celebration. With installations from The Cardboard Club, Hot Soup, Scab, David Illares, Rhys Eggleton, Alex Welch, music from three minstrels John-jo (of Meteor Street) Craigus (of Retinal Circus) and Sara (of Chrome Hoof), a fox playing in the forest and cider served thoughout.

Their roving adaptation of this gory Grimm Tale was a triumph: an atmospheric, involving hour’s worth of theatre…A splendidly conceived piece of roving theatre, and a perfect marriage between story and setting.
