Spotlight Series
By Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Keira McDonald

Written by a woman known for her spectacular storytelling skills through ensemble work (like her well-known Tony-winning “Metamorphoses,” dealing with Greek mythology), Zimmerman tackles the dark underside of a group of lesser-known fairy tales in this highly theatrical piece.

What happens when a child, left with a babysitter, discovers that the babysitter is literally an ogre? And the babysitter begins to read from a book, and the characters in each tale materialize? Come see this telling of tales with, as the LA Times described it, “decidedly adult chills.”
