WRIGHTALES Fairy Tales for Grown Ups
About This Show
Show Info: Wrightales are original fairy tales for grownups who have never quite grown up written and read by Lisa Wright. Though they follow the conventions of traditional tales, they have more humor than the Brothers Grimm, fewer princesses than Disney, and a lot less gore than Angela Carter. Wrightales take on eternal conundrums like: how to avoid ending up in the middle of nowhere, discovering the Secret to Happiness, and the search for a life that doesn’t involve goats. They take a whimsical, once-upon-a-time view of life’s quandaries and travails. The search for happiness and fulfillment is explored with humor and imagination. There are wizards and dragons, wild geese and small white dogs, magic and trickery, and all varieties of love. This collection brings together nine fairy tales in 16 chapters. All but one of the stories are complete in one or 2 episodes. The fairy tale tradition is alive and well and not just for kids, though kids are welcome, too.
