“Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
- Rainer Maria Rilke
From the fertile imagination of Tony award winner Mary Zimmerman, this stunning work adapts little-known classic fairy tales to weave a darkly beautiful new story. Beasts, beauties and other familiar and unfamiliar characters journey from close corners of childhood to distant basements of imagination.
Directed by Christine Mary Dunford, Lookingglass Theatre Company Ensemble member, and Director of UIC’s School of Theatre and Music.
