Power, alchemy , male initiation, wolves, and lost girls....

Surrender to a full-bloodied double-bill of fairytales for grown-ups: The Blacksmith at the Bridge of Bones and Little Red Riding Hood & other Lost Girls. Stray from the path in search of those who have forgotten the rules and dig deep into that enduring relationship between teacher and apprentice.

Fierce, unflinching and darkly comedic by turn - this is a place where rules are not broken lightly.
