Once upon a time
In a far away land
In a time of war
Stands a young woman
Because you don’t know her yet,
Or anything about her,
You’ll be noticing one thing about her
And probably only one.
Meet Frieda and the Frantz family, the world-famous travelling performers of the best Snow White story you’ll ever see. But there’s a problem, Snow White has run off with the Prince! Just when it looks like the final curtain’s about to fall, the perfect leading lady turns up hiding amongst the mothballs. The snow will go on, however, perfection is not always what it seems…
This witty, insightful re-telling of the Snow White story takes you on a journey through dangerous and shifting landscapes, daring you to go beyond the fairytale.
