Cinderella: A Fairytale

Adam Peck, Sally Cookson

PaperBack (30 Nov 2015)

This stage version of Cinderella has captivated audiences with its dazzlingly original take on one of the oldest and best-loved fairytales of all times.

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 their 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.

‘funny, heart-warming and beautiful piece of stage craft. This Cinderella is a treat.’ The Independent

‘a real classic, an exquisite Cinderella for all seasons that gets right to the heart of the story and offers its own delicious and surprising twists... This is not just a great Christmas show, but a great night for all times and ages.’ Lyn Gardner, Guardian

‘This non-panto fairy-tale … is so bewitching that you'd gladly watch it in a heat wave... A modern classic…that ends with a kiss, an embrace, a puff on an inhaler. First, second or third time around, Cinderella: A Fairytale is low on syrup and full of magic.’ Dominic Maxwell, The Times
