Cinderella (Way)

Charles Way, playwright


74 pgs. 5 female, 4 male

Originally produced at The Library Theatre (UK) in 1999

Run Time: 90 minutes

Audience Recommendation: All Ages


The play is set in Germany at the time when a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was trying to become a court composer. His music is key to this adaptation of the famous tale, and his composer’s baton is not after all dissimilar to a magic wand. Thus the healing power of art and love is explored in this timeless romance. Indeed time itself, as in music, is key to the emotional sequence of events as the young Cinderella tries to overcome grief and find a new life, in rapidly changing times.

“This adaptation of Perrault’s timeless version of the world’s best loved fairytale is not to be missed. A Christmas treat for all the family, whether one is five or 95.” -Morning Star
