Written and Composed by Wendy Kesselman, inspired by the Grimm's fairy tale.
Wendy Kesselman has taken 'The Juniper Tree' (the Brothers Grimm story), and turned it into a haunting little musical in the shape of a ballad... The events - including murder and cannibalism - are gruesome, but the telling has a childlike Story Theatre quality... as exemplified by her ballad of The Juniper Tree and her earlier play My Sister in This House, the versatile Miss Kesselman has a fabulist's view of guilt and retribution. - The New York Times
