Beauty and the Beast

Lucy Kirkwood & Katie Mitchell Price: $16.95

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

It's a wild and twisted tale, full of exciting and intriguing challenges for drama groups wishing to stage their own production

"Clever, fast and endearing, with grand insults and proper jeopardy" ~ The Times

"The story is beautifully and touchingly told ... a continuously inventive delight" ~ Telegraph
