The Three Sisters

139 Cowgate
The Live Room: AUG 3-27 at 17:30 (50 min) - Pay What You Can Tickets - from £5


Sleeping Beauty is not awakened by true love's first kiss, as some of you may already know... In a world of magic and darkness we discover who truly woke Talia and who tried to protect her by covering the kingdom in Thorns. But Thorns aren't enough to fend off a lustful King and his vengeful Queen. Discover the true tale in this reimagining of the original from the voices of Sleeping Beauty herself, her daughter and the queen who sought her destruction.

Well yes and no – but mostly, no.
