For wide-eyed adults and brave children, Annie Siddons' dark and delightful tale is a welcome new telling of this traditional favourite. Life is harsh and the angry sun burns down on the parched earth. A desperate father whispers gently to his baby daughter, 'I will never forget you - I love you' and leaves her under a rapunzel plant. With characteristic fun, puppetry, physical theatre, live music and animation, Kneehigh Theatre creates a special folktale of loveable rogues, magic pigs, evil brothers and, of course, enduring love, set in an Italian landscape. A fierce, funny and brave heroine fights for her independence, whilst her handsome and good-hearted prince has to find hidden depths to win his one true love.Performers Paul Hunter, Pieter Lawman, Mike Shepherd, Edith Tankus, James Traherne, Kirsty Woodward.
