Cinderella: A Fairytale.
by Sally Cookson and Adam Peck
Directed by Rob Whitehead.
When Ella’s mother dies, she is brought up by her devoted and loving father who teaches her the names and calls of the woodland birds that surround her home. But when her father marries again, Ella’s peaceful life is turned upside down by a host of new and unpleasant relations. It appears her only allies are the feathered friends who roost in the trees, but they are no ordinary birds…
With crystal-clear storytelling,. this classic tale of fortunes reversed is brought startlingly and imaginatively to life.
Since its premiere in Bristol in 2011/12, Cinderella has gone on to brilliantly successful Christmas runs at two London venues, won a 2014 Off West End Award and was nominated for a 2013 Olivier Award.
