Beauty and the Beast (RSC edition)  

Beauty and the Beast (RSC edition) $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST

A magical re-telling of the story of Beauty and the Beast, first performed in this version by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

In Beauty and the Beast we encounter two worlds: the domestic world of Beauty's family in mid-eighteenth-century France, safe and familiar. And another world, first stumbled upon by her merchant father: a place of great riches and disturbing nightmares, dominated by the fearsome and tragic Beast.

Uniting the two is Beauty's humility and sense of duty, which slowly matures into transforming love...

An earlier version of this play, written for the Young Vic, is also available here.
