Come along to the Fractured Fairytales Workshop and have some fun modernising classic fairytales!

Fractured Fairytales are traditional fairy tales, rearranged to create new plots with fundamentally different meanings or messages. Fractured fairy tales are closely related to fairy-tale parodies, but the two serve different purposes: parodies mock individual tales and the genre as a whole; fractured fairy tales, with a reforming intent, seek to impart updated social and moral messages.

Fractured fairytales are designed to be humorous by changing the story in an unexpected way; altering characters or adding a modern language and events.
