Juniper Tree, A Tragic Household Tale, The
Full Length Musical, Drama
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
