The Robber Bridegroom by The Brothers Grimm, adapted by Andrew G. Cooper

Director, Puppet Designer

Chimera Theatre Fringe Tour, July to September 2019

“The Robber Bridegroom is simply a masterpiece…Not only is this adaptation a love letter to this artistic movement but also a Shakespearean playwright was behind the reconstruction of the seminal tale. I have to tip my hat to Andrew G. Cooper for his use of turning the Sisters Grimm to a wicked new take...” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Ed Sum, Two Hungry Blokes

 

" Nightmare and reality intertwine in Andrew G. Cooper’s dramatic interpretation of “The Robber Bridegroom,”... this performance deserves a standing applause.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ½ — Chris Horne, The Marlet
 

“The end of the show was unexpected, unlike anything I’ve seen at the Fringe before…” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Simon Bjerksen, Fringe Review
 

“This innovative marvel of a show is creepy, creative, and a wonderfully subversive undoing of the Brothers Grimm classic... the music and the staging heighten the tension and it’s genuinely horrifying to watch what unfolds" — Andrea Warner, The Georgia Straight

“Its final few moments are a testament to the power of theatre... its impact is undeniable.” — Mark Robins, Vancouver Presents

"Creative...wonderfully realized" — The Winnipeg Free Press

"the performance is quite lovely in an old-world way.... pace helps build the growing sense of horror and impending doom. It is creepy." — CBC Manitoba

Chimera Theatre and Jupiter Theatre, February/March 2019 (World Premiere)

“The Robber Bridegroom took what was already an eerie fairy tale to a new level by layering on the audience’s own consciousness...These puppets are far from the friendly faces of the Muppets and had even skeptical audience members on the edge of their seats and scared.”
