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.
