The Fateful Fable of 13 is a grim tale for the 21st century, all about 13 fantastical (but ultimately doomed) characters. Each one is cursed from birth, having been born in the mysterious month of Thirteenber. Bound together by fate, they’re destined to cause one another’s farcical deaths in a chain of unfortunate events, all concocted by the calamatous crooked creature, 'Thirteen'.

The story, illustrations and sculptures were created by Matt Roby in partnership with Arts Council England and the Chapel Gallery. The is show is currently touring various UK galleries from 2011-2013. Now looking to adapt the story into film / animation.
