What happens when you combine magical realism, the wonder and menace of fairy tales, a good dash of wild women, the wisdom of Sesame Street and modern street smarts? You get The Adventures of Crazy Jane and Red Haired Annie. Set in a place that's neither here nor there, a time that's both now and once upon, these curious tales will make you laugh, gasp and reconsider how you see the world.
Join Crazy Jane and Red Haired Annie as they meet the Faerie Queen; find out what happens when you lose the thing that makes you most you; encounter serpents, angels and the devil himself. These stories can be heard as straight-up adventure tales or as the deeper, more meaningful narratives that all good fairy tales are.
Inspired by authors such as Charles DeLint, Neil Gaiman, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, informed by the strangest folktales and myths, and presented with humor, elegance and a sly wink, The Adventures of Crazy Jane and Red Haired Annie are sure to entertain and inspire.
Storyteller Laura Packer has been telling tales since she began talking. Her original stories for grown-ups and families are based in myth and personal experience. She’s appeared at events around the world, has taught in boardrooms and nursery schools, was the 2012 co-recipient of the Brother Blue and Ruth Hill Award, the 2009 Oracle Award for Regional Leadership, the 2016 Best Of Venue at the KC Fringe, and has hosted multiple storytelling venues.
