Chichester Festival Youth Theatre return to the magnificent landscape of Cass Sculpture Foundation with Philip Pullman's retelling of the original stories by the Brothers Grimm, in an adaptation by Philip Wilson. Suitable for 8+.

Once upon a time, in a land far away... In a fantastical fairy tale world, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and Rapunzel follow their destinies alongside other, stranger folk: mythical creatures, proud princesses, wicked witches and bold princes.

This bewitching and eerie patchwork of tales is woven by an ensemble of quirky storytellers and a troupe of musicians. Follow them through the enchanted pathways and darker twists and turns of the beautifully landscaped Cass Sculpture Foundation – if you dare….

Author of His Dark Materials and The Firework-Maker’s Daughter, Philip Pullman’s retelling of the original stories by the Brothers Grimm appeals to adults as much as children, preserving their macabre simplicity and legendary fascination.

Directed by Dale Rooks, Chichester Festival Youth Theatre staged Running Wild at Cass Sculpture Foundation in 2015, winning the UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People.

The audience will follow the promenade production on foot through a variety of locations, including some steep and uneven ground. Suitable for ages 8+ NB no parking at Cass; buses depart from Chichester College, details with tickets.
