Rats’ Tales mixes traditional European fairy tales with some brand new stories written by ex Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.

Centred around the tale of the Pied Piper, Rats’ Tales deliciously confronts the dark side of the imagination with characters that have powered the play of children over the centuries . Filled with venomous tales it embraces childhood with all its present joys and wonderful memories, proving that sadness cannot prevail and that there is always hope of a joyous celebration of the “Happy Ever After”.

A dark and magical cycle of tales packed with thrills, laughs, loves and more than a bit of magic. Rats’ Tales explores the power of story-telling to guide children through the exciting and yet dangerous adventure through the forest of life.
