09 Crumb Trail L

The death of the Fairy Tale. Can we live in a world without fairy tales?

A stark illumination of the cherished fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, Gina Moxley’s The Crumb Trail explores the isolation that comes from groping for survival in a dark world of technology and greed. Featuring a full suite of the media intrusions that now saturate our daily lives – including live video feed, You Tube clips and internet sex rooms – Pan Pan’s savvy but scared kids are getting lost in a very contemporary forest from which it might not be so easy to return.

No crime has taken place – or has it? Maybe we haven’t noticed or simply don’t care. One of Ireland’s most exciting and provocative theatre companies, re-imagines the most chilling of The Brothers Grimm’s tales.

Contains scenes of an adult nature.

It will blow you away because the long-anticipated Irish première of the latest work from the determinably international Pan Pan may well be the talk of the Festival following successful runs in Berlin, Düsseldorf and New York.
