Cinderella or The Ash Girl, retold by Holly Robinson for Playbox Theatre, and directed by Emily Quash

After her mother’s death, brave and kind Elenor finds herself at the mercy of her unkind stepmother who makes her a servant in her own home. 

Despite her mistreatment, Elenor is determined to see the shining hearts of everyone around her – including a Prince and his Princess sister in need of their own escape. 

When the Winter Festival comes to the Kingdom, Elenor hopes to attend just one ball, to be allowed one enchanting moment. Meanwhile her stepmother and stepsisters do everything they can to ruin her dreams. Will kindness, [along with some doves and slippers and a little magic prevail, leading Elenor, Prince Sebastian and Princess Madeline to find their own Happily Ever Afters? 

Based on the version from the Brothers Grimm, Cinderella ~ or The Ash Girl is Holly Robinson’s retelling of the timeless story – one of neglect, bravery and how we survive – set against a backdrop of magic, hope and winter enchantment.

This is set to be a spectacular Christmas adventure, bearing all the hallmarks of a perfect Playbox Fairy-tale.

Cinderella ~ The Ash Girl is directed by Emily Quash.
