The Robber Bridegroom tells the tale of an impoverished miller who seeks a better life for his only daughter. To save the mill, they arrange for her marriage to a wealthy man from out of town. She wants to help her family and do what is right, but something wicked lurks in the woods where the bridegroom lives... Jupiter Theatre and Chimera Theatre bring new life to this classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale through puppetry and physical theatre in this dark adaptation that explores intuition and the uncertain nature of humanity.
