mac Birmingham - Cinderella: A Fairytale

Thu 3 Dec 2015 – Sat 9 Jan 2016

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 their quirky visual style, crystal-clear storytelling, original live music and pitch-perfect ensemble acting, director Sally Cookson and team bring this classic tale of fortunes reversed startlingly and imaginatively to life.

Created by Tobacco Factory Theatres and Travelling Light Theatre Company, when Cinderella: A Fairytale first performed in Bristol it held audiences captivated by its dazzlingly original take on one of the oldest and best-loved fairy tales of all times. Since then it’s 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.

Running time: 2hrs (inc interval)
