WAY Back in 1997 Edinburgh Fringe saw the premiere of Tall Stories first show, ‘The Happy Prince and Other Stories’, adapted from Oscar Wilde’s fairy tales.
21 years later, Tall Stories are back and better than ever, at the Edinburgh Fringe with two distinctive Wilde adaptations – the World Premiere of ‘The Canterville Ghost’ and the Edinburgh premiere of ‘Wilde Creatures’.
A new show for older audiences, ‘The Canterville Ghost’ features comedy, magic, ventriloquism and original music played live on stage. The show will entertain audiences with magical variety acts woven into Wilde’s ghostly tale.
When the Otis family move into Canterville Hall, they’re warned about the fearsome ghost that stalks its corridors. But the Otis family are a thoroughly modern bunch – has anyone warned the Canterville Ghost about them?
Direct from Sydney Opera House and London’s West End, Tall Stories is delighted to be bringing ‘Wilde Creatures’ back to the stage for its Edinburgh premiere. A group of storytelling musicians bring Oscar Wilde’s hauntingly beautiful fairy tales to life for everyone aged 5 to 105, with original live music and a generous dash of comedy.
