THE FISHER AND HIS WIFE
A 20 minute street theatre to delight auidence of all ages.
A very, very long time ago there lived a fisherman, together with his wife, in a small cottage made of dirty old metal. They had everything they ever needed and were happy and content. Then one day a talking fish starts granting them wishes…
This traditional story from the fairy tale collection of the Brother’s Grimm has a sudden rebirth and renewed relevance in the present day. The story is told from a box, mounted at the front of a penny farthing bicycle and will keep both children and adults entertained.
The 20 minute show is ideal for outdoor performances and can be performed several times a day. A great festival show, but equally at home in alternative theatre spaces and even private gardens.
