FRACTURED FABLES

Hare raising tails!

FRACTURED FABLES 

Did you know – Aesop wrote 725 fables way back in the 6th century BCE?  It’s time to dust them off and present them for 2023. A lot has changed since Aesop was around – but his iconic messages remain as pertinent as ever. Ready, set, go – it’s fast-paced, kookily creative and utterly delightful. From the creators of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts 

Featuring a collection of favourite fables including: The Tortoise and the Hare, The Ants and the Grasshoppers, Two Travellers and a Bear and The Dog and his Reflection.

TEACHER REVIEWS

“The students – and teachers – could not get enough of those raucous characters. It was slick and snappy, the performers plugged-in, pumped and professional. It’s what shake & stir does oh-so well: make high-quality content engaging and relevant for audiences through world-class standards of performance. Thank you!” ST JOHN’S ANGLICAN COLLEGE

“The audience lapped it up – it’s old fashioned storytelling that stays true to the spirit of Dahl and it inspires us to rediscover his work.”
