GRIM AND FISCHER runs Nov. 9-10

GRIM AND FISCHER: A Deathly Comedy in Full Face Mask
Presented by Cincinnati Fringe Festival
Nov. 9-10

Death meets his match in Mrs. Fischer, a tenacious granny not ready to breathe her last. An aging grandmother is pit against none other than the Grim Reaper and confronts the inevitable question: what is it to know your end is nigh? Can you ignore death? Can you escape death? Can you hit death in the face with a frying pan? A tender telling of an absurdly epic journey; one woman’s fight for survival takes fantastical flight in a showdown with Grim himself. Ages 10 and up.

GRIM AND FISCHER is a new dish made of old ingredients. It is performed in full-face mask, a wordless, whimsical form rarely seen on North American stages which audiences have described as watching a living cartoon, or ‘live-action Pixar’. And like a cartoon, the power of GRIM AND FISCHER lies in its ability to step away from the sharpness of reality and offer a different lens though which to examine a deeper, darker universal struggle: our fear of death. In this distinct style of storytelling, with a rich soundscape, timeless slapstick and masterful physical performances, GRIM AND FISCHER takes its audience on a profound journey that is at turns both hilarious and heart-breaking.
