Cinderella

Cinderella

Welcome to Belleville! The most aggressively picturesque town in the history of the world, populated exclusively with gorgeous townsfolk who stop at nothing to achieve perfection.

Location: Gillian Lynne Theatre, 166 Drury Lane, London, WC2B 5PW

Event Organiser: Ros Patrick

Maintaining the Belleville façade is a full-time job, and one that is taken very seriously indeed. The only person steadfastly refusing to live in the fairy tale is Cinderella, loud-mouthed, dripping with disdain, and more likely to roast Hansel and Gretel for dinner than play the demure and downtrodden maid. Cinderella is desperate to escape. But underneath it all, the loneliness that comes with being the town pariah is wearing on her.

It doesn’t help that her only friend, Prince Sebastian, has suddenly become the heir to the throne after the mysterious disappearance of his elder brother, a sex god and charisma machine, Prince Charming. Suddenly thrust into the spotlight, the formerly shy Sebastian seems to be quickly growing into his brother’s enormous britches, and out of his friendship with Cinderella. But this change of circumstances also introduces something else to the relationship, a new spark which neither of them quite knows what to do with. Could it be that these two old friends mean more to one another than they are willing to let on?

After a devastating PR disaster for Belleville and with the threat of the guillotine, the Queen decides that the only thing to save the town is a Royal Wedding, something colourful so the peasants don’t get too revolutionary. All looks lost for the blossoming romance, until Cinderella meets The Godmother, who can fix any problem with a little incision and a couple of broken ribs. Maybe the answer lies where Cinderella has been refusing to look: in becoming the identikit beauty that everyone has always told her to be.
