Received directly and followed up on-line:
A Most Unsettling and Possibly Haunted Evening in the Parlour of the Brothers Grimm
an original co-production from Connor Hopkins' Trouble Puppet Theatre Company and Beth Burns' Hidden Room
October 28, 29, and 30, 8 p.m. (special 10 p.m. late show on Saturday the 30th only)
311 W. 7th Street, admission: $20
The companies are joining forces for one weekend only to present a creepy celebration of the brothers' very darkest tales (read by Robert Matney as Wilheim Grimm), with intervals by live musicians and, of course, by the incredible creations of Trouble Puppet.
The team will be performing a few well-known classics along with some rarely heard stories, all in their original forms, not censored or sanitized for modern sensibilities as is so often the case. As the luck of Austin theatre-goers and Halloween revelers will have it, the Grimm's original serial killing, filicide, cannibalism, live burning, and losses of limbs will remain in these tales of fear and warning where they belong. Connor and Beth assure the public that the evening will be "highly disquieting," and is not recommended for patrons under the age of thirteen.
Also scheduled is outstanding dancer and choreographer Djahari Clark from the internationally acclaimed company "Desert Sin," a gypsy fortune teller's booth, Victorian parlour games, and other exotic oddities throughout the evening.
