In 1284, 130 children disappeared from Hamelin town. Out of this real event, the legend of the Pied Piper was born. A dark morality tale passed on orally, written down by the Brother’s Grimm and transformed into poetry by Robert Browning.

This irresistible retelling of the Pied Piper explores how decisions of one generation impact another and the voicelessness of the young.

A solo show featuring: One formidable Countess; A crooked Pied Piper; Five disgruntled villagers; Some shifty rats and Masses of rebellious children. This musical tragi-comedy, is a rip-roaring morality tale of our times.
