Ella lives in the forest with her loving and devoted father. When her father remarries, Ella is soon at the mercy of her cruel and scheming new relations. A chance encounter leads to an invitation to a ball and a hilarious and heart-warming reversal of fortunes begins, with surprising twists along the way.
Join us at the Jack this Christmas for a thrilling and imaginative retelling of the Brothers Grimm version of the story, in a dazzlingly original take on one of the best-known fairy tales of all time.
Cinderella: A Fairytale is produced by the team behind the Offie nominated and five star productions of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, Lifeboat and Kes.
The original production was nominated for an Olivier Award in 2013 and won an Off West End Award in 2014.

It’s a beautiful piece of theatre. Subtle, engaging and deeply touching. This is the Jack team doing what they do best and once again producing a diamond. This is a real treat. It is yet further proof that the Brockley Jack is one of the best theatres in London. ★★★★★ Spy in the Stalls on Kes
