You know this story: you might just have heard it once upon a dream. The King and Queen are desperate for a child. They're overjoyed when a mysterious fairy grants their wish – but in an unforgivable faux pas, the fairy doesn't merit an invitation to baby Rose's christening. In her unbridled rage, she unleashes a powerful curse. On Briar Rose's 16th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel, and everyone in the kingdom will subsequently fall asleep for 100 years.
Their only hope of waking lies with the arrival of a prince from the Far East.
This stunning retelling of the timeless tale ambitiously utilises all manner of exciting theatre techniques to create a truly magical show. Puppets, projections, live music, and automatons will sweep the stage in this ambitious twist on a classic.
