Frighteningly funny, hilariously scary, comically gruesome and all with a heart of the purest gold, the fairy tales of Giambattista Basile are all of these things and much more. Recorded two hundred years before the Grimms, the Neapolitan poet Basile’s collection of fairy tales are a thousand moons in distance from the sugar-coated versions that most of us know today.

CCSW Presents in conjunction with Chris Brooks, a selection of Basile’s most audacious fairy tales contained within Basile’s own frame narrative.
