'Lucky people so 'tis said are blessed with fortune whilst in bed.'
A long time ago, one disgruntled fairy cast a spell that sent the whole world into a spin …
This adaptation of the story of Briar Rose by the Brothers Grimm conjures a dreamlike fantasy of palaces and forests, ogres and fairies, princes and babes.
It tells the story of a King and Queen desperate for a child, and a fairy who grants their wish.
But when the fairy is not invited to baby Rose's christening, she casts a different kind of spell - on her 16th birthday, the young princess will prick her finger and everyone in the kingdom will fall asleep for 100 years.
Only the arrival of a prince from the Far East brings hope of an awakening.
This bold production spins puppets, projections, automata and live music to weave an irresistible magic.
