‘Witty, ingenious and romantic… a winner’ Time Out
‘Lucky people so ‘tis said are blessed with fortune whilst in bed.’
A long time ago, one disgruntled fairy cast a spell that sent the whole world into a spin…
This adaptation of the story of Briar Rose by the Brothers Grimm conjures a dreamlike fantasy of palaces and forests, ogres and fairies, princes and babes. It tells the story of a King and Queen desperate for a child, and a fairy who grants their wish. But when the fairy is not invited to baby Rose’s christening, she casts a different kind of spell – on her 16th birthday, the young princess will prick her finger and everyone in the kingdom will fall asleep for 100 years.
Only the arrival of a prince from the Far East brings hope of an awakening. This bold production spins puppets, projections, automata and live music to weave an irresistible magic.
Sleeping Beauty in the Wood is aimed at ages 4 – 9.
