Title: A Grimm ChristmasProducers: Barbican Theatre & The WheelDirector: Kevin Johnson

About A Grimm Christmas

A Grimm Christmas is an adults-only alternative Christmas show, co-produced by The Wheel and Barbican Theatre.Following on from last years production An Evening With Krampus, this new production is billed as ‘a dark spin on those fairytales you thought you . . . before Hollywood sprinkled sugar on them!’

We envisage there will be some devising during the rehearsal process, from a draft script.We would like to explore comedy (double-act), live music/song and horror, so any experience with any of the above would be desirable but not essential.
Please note - alongside the professional company there will be a small number of actors in training.

Looking for:

- 2 male / male identifying actors to play The Brothers Grimm

Playing age:

 24 - 38

We welcome applications from actors of any race/ethnicity, and from non-disabled or disabled actors.
