The Shelter's newest production, Fairy Tale, brings five spectacular new plays to the New York stage. Each play was inspired by the classic fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, Washington Irving and Charles Perrault, and each explores the fundamentals of fairy tales, diving into their exotic worlds, rich archetypes and shadowed psychologies. The playwrights have re-imagined these elements in a grown-up world, and in doing so, expose the fears and joys which have ingrained fairy tales into our global consciousness. Ranging in genre, the plays are funny, sad, gruesome, touching, strange and fantastical … everything a fairy tale should be.
