The Radio Riel Players Present: Tales from New Babbage — The Robber Bridegroom

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Sunday, 5 February, 2012

The Radio Riel Players Present” is Radio Riel’s independent radio production of classic stories, poems and plays, all performed by The Radio Riel Players from around the world.

Tales from New Babbage” are darker stories brought to you by the residents of the Steampunk City-State of New Babbage. As they say in New Babbage, what could possibly go wrong?

In 1812, the Brothers Grimm published the first edition of Household and Children’s Tales.

300 years later, these same tales, half remembered from our own childhood readings, still haunt the dark corners of our minds. To celebrate the 300th anniversary of the book that evolved into Grimm’s Fairy Tales, we proudly present one of the grimmest of those stories. As gruesome as this tale is, it was not removed from the final editions, perhaps for its value as a cautionary tale.
