The Grimm Brothers' classic version of the morality tale Cinderella, or, in their words, Aschenputtel, takes on a new life at Smock Alley Theatre, thanks to an edgy new script by Katie McCann.

The Grimm Brothers' classic version of the morality tale Cinderella, or, in their words, Aschenputtel, takes on a new life at Smock Alley Theatre, thanks to an edgy new script by Katie McCann.

This Cinderella is darker than your usual Disney character... the Grimm brothers were just that, by name and by nature. Their rendition of Cinderella is notable for the lack of fairytale carriages, and the addition of two evil stepsisters who will stop at nothing to get their prince and that includes cutting off their toes and heels to fit into the dainty, magic shoes.

McCann's adaptation is expressly intended to repackage and renew this classic tale for the modern audience, so expect folklore with thoroughly fashionable flavour.

This will be a highlight of the Christmas theatre season, so enjoy.
