There’s nothing edgy or dark about this collection of tales. In fact, this might be the most gentle, relaxing and sweet show at the fringe — so gentle some will find it boring.

But the three Winnipeg storytellers are experts at their craft, weaving folktales, fables and fairy stories from Norway, Japan, Mexico and beyond. Scattered between each tale is a musical interlude that lends the whole thing a medieval minstrel feel. Imagine very talented grandparents spinning quaint old yarns before bedtime.

At 75 minutes, there’s one story too many, but this show does what it does very well.

— Mary Agnes Welch

From the official Fringe Festival guide:

Stories bring the world into existence, but things are not always what they seem. Devils lurk at the edge of the road and feathery wives try to dodge the gates of hell, so keep your wits about you.

The Master Storytellers are back to take you to the edge of gloom, laughter and redemption. Music cleanses the palate between stories.
