Nicole et Martin

Based on a story by the Brothers Grimm, The Fisherman and his Wife is a delightfully ageless folk tale for audience members from 6 to 106. A spellbinding story centred on a married couple and a cascade of magic wishes, The Fisherman and his Wife is charmingly conjured by Nicole et Martin out of a single wooden box: the ocean, the long table in the castle, an emperor’s finery, even the sun itself. This joyful and popular multi-award-winning show is a rollercoaster theatrical journey from one wish to the next.
