Gonzo Moose Theatre Company return to Theatre Royal Plymouth with Once Upon A Time… from Tuesday 21 – Saturday 25 January.

Having previously thrilled audiences with hit shows The Thing That Came From Over There and What The Dickens, Gonzo Moose are back with a comedy fairy tale adventure bursting with physical comedy, absurd jokes and magical illusion with a healthy dose of silliness and mayhem; this show is a fast-packed rollicking ride, mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome peril. 

In Once Upon A Time… Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are set to publish the final volume of what will become the greatest ever collection of fairy tales. But on the eve of their greatest triumph, a shadowy figure from their past lets it be known he intends to collect an old debt. And if they are unable to settle what they own, their very lives are in danger.

Now their sister Lotte must travel deep into the Fairy Tale Kingdom and confront a great evil in order to save her beloved older brothers. Is there a heroine in grave danger??? Yes. Obviously From what??? Well … lots of things. It’s a complex play Will she make it back alive??? They can’t tell you. Well they can, but it’s a total plot spoiler.

Join three daring actors as they switch wildly between myriad roles, all packed into 90 minutes, creating a frenetic performance full of shocks, spine tingling stillness, and blood curdling terror as they take audiences on a journey to discover the malevolence which lurks within the woods. With comedy and thrills galore, audiences can expect visual delights, a supremely silly script, magical illusion, and live music. 

Tickets are priced from £15 and can be booked online at www.theatreroyal.com or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222. Concessions are available.
