The classic tale of Sleeping Beauty’s curse – as seen through the eyes of the fairy who curses her. Written by acclaimed director Rufus Norris for the Young Vic Theatre, London.
Once upon a time there was a beautiful Princess who was loved by everyone. Well… almost everyone. Cursed by a wicked fairy, she pricks her finger and falls into a deep sleep. One hundred years later, a Prince wakes her with a kiss. But the Prince isn’t as brave as he should be – and his mother’s a bit of an ogress… Based on Perrault’s 17th-century classic, Sleeping Beauty goes beyond the kiss into a perilous world of beastly shadows, nasty smells and a forest full of enchanted trouble.
