Think 'Women who Run with the Wolves' meets 'Harry Potter' and you're getting close.
A one-woman show brings to life two classic fables and completely shape-shifts them into bigger, hairier and wilder versions truly fit for the adult, but without leaving behind our inner child.
This endearing adventure draws together epic archetypal characters to make you laugh, cry, and feel truly connected to the self, held warmly in the over-sized and slightly pointed claws of a big, black wolf.
See physical theatre and animal work like you've never seen before in a new Australia play that is fabulously alive and ambitious. Audiences will be engaged from Jem's first flick of tail to the cracking through of a much larger, more ferocious beast in the play’s final moments.
With threads of comedy and clowning woven throughout, this adventure will “lead you into the dark forest of Grimm, make you face your fears, and then change you forever.” Steve Davis, Smart Arts, ABC Adelaide.
"Jem is an energy magnet. This piece has legs...it will go places." Peter Green, 3MBS
"Jem is a tour de force. At once she inspires me to return to the theatre, and overwhelms me with her depth and range. This piece will lead you into the dark forest of Grimm, make you face your fears, and then change you forever." Steve Davis, Smart Arts, ABC Adelaide.
"She is mesmerising, heartbreaking, sexy, hilarious and completely unpredictable to watch. She has such beautiful depth, such rawness, such power " Kim Farrant, Film Director of Strangerland (Nicole Kidman) and Angel of Mine (Noomi Rapace).
