Lucy Kirkwood’s delightful version of the classic fairytale, first seen in a production devised and directed by Katie Mitchell at the National Theatre for Christmas 2010.

‘I expect you have been told fairytales before. But you have never really heard a fairytale until you have heard it told by a real fairy.’ 

The theft of a single rose has monstrous consequences for Beauty and her father. Because this is no ordinary rose…and this is no ordinary fairytale. Narrated by a pair of mischievous fairies, a very helpful Rabbit, and a Thoughtsnatcher machine, this timeless story is sure to surprise, delight and enchant.

A wild and twisted tale, full of exciting and intriguing challenges for drama groups wishing to stage their own production.
