Alternative Bedtime Stories

Alternative Bedtime Stories


Just back after a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe, it was one of the hits of last year’s Belfast Comedy Festival.

Once upon a time, two fair maidens dragged fairy tales kicking and screaming into the 21st century in this sharp and original review of all things ‘happily ever after’. Follow the trail of breadcrumbs to see your favourite bedtime stories poked with a big stick before being tossed into a cauldron with physical comedy and biting wit. Sample the results. They may not taste as sweet as you remember.

Sorcha Shanahan (Edinburgh Comedy Panel Prize Sprit of the Fringe 2016) and Gemma Walker’s topical, hilarious, relevant and strikingly different show. Top 10 – Belfast Comedy Festival.

“An utterly hilarious show that left my jaws still aching from laughter for days after. Skilfully written, it expertly weaves an important and thought provoking message through an avalanche of laughter, fun and outstanding comedic performances. An absolute must-see. I can’t wait to see it again!”
