Tall Stories celebrates its 21st Birthday with a world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, productions in the USA, Australia and Around the UK, plus a West End Christmas season.
Olivier award nominated and renowned theatre company Tall Stories celebrates its 21st birthday in 2018 with a stellar year of productions including a brand new show for grown-ups. The 1997 Edinburgh Fringe saw the premiere of the company’s first show, ‘The Happy Prince and Other Stories’, adapted from Oscar Wilde’s fairy tales. 21 years later, the company returns to the Edinburgh Fringe with two distinctive Wilde adaptations: the world premiere of ‘The Canterville Ghost’ (definitely not suitable for under 12s) and the Edinburgh premiere of ‘Wilde Creatures’ (for ages 5 and over) – straight from London’s West End.
Since joint artistic directors Olivia Jacobs and Toby Mitchell founded the company in 1997, they have co-created and staged 30 productions, in 5 languages, in 15 countries, over 6 continents – with performances at the Sydney Opera House, on Broadway and in London’s West End. The company’s most noted and popular productions include ‘The Gruffalo’, ‘Room On The Broom’ and ‘The Snow Dragon’.
Tall Stories is working on eight shows over their anniversary year including The Snail And The Whale, The Gruffalo’s Child, Emily Brown And The Thing, The Snow Dragon, and The Gruffalo.
