‘Children of the Grim’ at the Ring

The Players’ Ring
105 Marcy St.
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

By Billy Butler
Directed and produced by Bitter Pill

Bitter Pill is back at the Players Ring Theatre with a brand new theatrical presentation for the first time in four years since their bloody successful production of William Shakespeare’s, “Titus Andronicus Musicus” in 2018.

“Children of the Grim,” is a neo-gothic musical staging of original and traditional children’s stories, nursery rhymes, and folk songs. Suitable for macabre children of all ages, Bitter Pill uses classic story-telling, puppetry, theatre, multi-media, and music to create a unique theatrical experience. Stories and songs from 17th century nursery rhymes, Mother Goose, Brothers Grimm, Kafka and Kipling as well as brand new original tunes. “Children of the Grim” is a sardonic alternative to the usual sugar-coated children’s theatre and the Bitter Pill ensemble is just weird enough to engage all ages.
