Rosey Snow is trapped in a fairy tale world that is by turns funny and a little frightening, with her stepsisters Goneril and Regan, her demented stepmother, her lecherous father, a bewildered Prince, a fairy godmother who sings salty old sailor songs, a troll and a possibly homicidal village idiot. This play investigates the archetypal origins of the world's most popular fairy tale, contrasting the familiar and charming Perrault version with the darker, more ancient and disturbing tale recorded by the brothers Grimm. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in a fairy tale for adults.
First produced at Indiana State University Summerstage in 1978, directed by Gary Stewart.

We have used this play twice for UIL competition. It is easily cut to fit the 40 minute limit. The play itself is funny and thought-provoking. Audiences as well as the actors love it! We are having a ball producing it this year!
