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.
