When this production of Cinderella was performed in Bristol last year, it held audiences captivated 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 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. The St James Theatre will be co-producing this revival of Cinderella with Travelling Light and the Tobacco Factory Theatre.
