Aesop's Fables (Ages 8 - 12)
A Unicorn Production
All the most interesting things are ambiguous.
- Directed by Justin Audibert
As far as we know, Aesop was a slave and storyteller who lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BC. But although we don’t know much about the man himself, we do still have over 725 of his stories – passed down from generation to generation.
We considered doing all 725 fables and then thought better of it. What we’ve done instead is asked a few of our favourite writers to select one fable and to re-tell it for our today’s audience. We’re presenting two versions of the results: one for ages 4-7 and one for ages 8-12.
This page is for the version for ages 8 - 12. Click here to book for ages 4 - 7.
Accompanied by events and workshops, this is a celebration of young and old, ancient and new – a tribute to how fresh, bold and vibrant the classics remain today.
The Moral of the Story Workshop

Aesop was an extraordinary storyteller who used cunning foxes, surly dogs, clever mice, fearsome lions and foolish humans to affect us. Join us for a workshop that puts you in the story with these well-known characters.
