Something Grim(m) - Dallas Theater Center


Select Page

A creative journey inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales that takes place around the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre.

A child is born, brought into the world by strange magic. The child has the ability to make anything they wish come true. Things take an unexpected turn when the child wishes for a friend, and they must choose between their own desires and that of their friend’s. Can they put their desires aside for the greater good? Could you?

“We’re living in a time of much reckoning. In new and extreme ways, we are being confronted with the dangerous effects of not accepting responsibility for one another. And, almost as if in defiance of this thought, our own wants and needs continue to intensify,” said Tiffany Nichole Greene, Director of Something Grim(m), Dallas Theater Center. “This theatrical journey explores that. What do we actually owe one another?”

The production will include comic strips, pop-up story books, as well as pre-recorded video and audio elements. It culminates in a unique moment at the end requiring each audience member to make a moral choice based on the impact of the fairytale they have just witnessed. The production was created specifically for this cast and this location. The varied storytelling components and guiding narrative make for a truly distinctive experience.
