CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
A princess under a fairy's curse pricks her finger on a spindle and sleeps for a hundred years, waiting to be woken by a prince's kiss. But hold on a moment. There's a distinctly different slant to this story. The princess is beautiful and spirited but there are two princes and a lot of threatening thorns. As for the fairy who caused all the trouble in the first place - well, putting things right isn't as simple as casting another spell. Rufus Norris's splendidly entertaining and mischievous version of the original fairy tale ventures beyond the usual ?happy ever after' ending with the prince and princess united. The course of true love never did run smooth - especially if your mother-in-law is an ogress with an unfortunate taste for human flesh...Author Rufus Norris. Corporate Sponsor Mercer (Chichester).
