A sinister co-production from Trouble Puppet Theatre Company (Frankenstein, The Jungle) and the Hidden Room (Taming of the Shrew- Original Practices), “A Most Unsettling and Possibly Haunted Evening in the Parlour of the Brothers Grimm” features thrillingly gruesome (and therefore rarely told) tales, accompanied by live musicians and of course the amazing creations of Trouble Puppet.
WHILE IN THE PARLOUR, YOU MAY ALSO:
Thrill to the forbidden dances of Desert Sin!
Dare to see your future revealed in the hands of a mysterious gypsy!
Revel with Wilheim Grimm as he leads the
lighthearted in parlour games!
Delight in caramel apples, and other traditional treats!
Brave the tales that have for hundreds of years
terrified and taught the invaluable lesson –
“TRUST NO ONE.”
Brought to Austin as a collaboration with our good friends, Trouble Puppet Theatre Company.

An Evening in the Parlour of the Brothers Grimm was something of a Halloween valentine. Or more precisely, perhaps, a delicate, exciting dark chocolate delight, laced with spices and bitter almonds. Sweet enough to make you giddy with the fetching, subtle taste of cyanide… Hidden Room… crafter for us an experience that made us believe, illustrated the hypnotic effects of games and earnest play, and created a fully developed story and through-line. They lifted us out of the Austin evening for a short hour and then sent us spinning back again….”"-Michael Meigs, Austin Live Theatre
…you know there’s magic about to happen…a fantastic theatrical experience."-Ryan E. Johnson, Austin Theatre Examiner
If you miss it, you’re…well I don’t want to call you an idiot. But I really really really think you should go… you’ll be laughing while you’re gasping."-Spike Gillepse, Spike Speaks
