Awaking Beauty, by Alan Ayckbourn, asks what happens after 'happily ever after…' as Aurora awakens to a life in suburbia and the evil Carabosse discovers true love… or perhaps just true lust.
In a production which critics have likened to Sondheim's 'Into the Woods', Awaking Beauty takes a darker look at the well-known fable 'Sleeping Beauty'. As we scratch beneath the surface we discover that all may not be as it seems in the kingdom and explore what happens when an age-old story meets the 21st century. Perhaps the fairytale doesn't have the happy ending we all want to believe in?
Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes (approx)
