“There’s something very appealing about a classic story arc to me and fantasy tales are a really fun, limitless way to explore that,” Saunders said in a release. “I wanted the format to reflect some predictable and nostalgic elements of storytelling while still being unpredictable in nature as well as rich and diverse in content.”

Tall Tales features a hero embarking on a fantastical and hilarious journey. Fans of films such as The Princess BrideLabyrinth, and Lord of the Rings will feel right at home during this limited-run show.

“It has been exciting figuring out how to create a form that can both reflect those fantasy storytelling elements while being fresh each time,” Saunders added. “I’m looking forward to our ensemble getting the time and space allowed by long form to explore character arcs more extensively and dive into the richness of the world we build based on unique suggestions from our audience.”
