Simon Hall - Unhappily Ever After

PG poetry for the modern age.

Fairy tales are ubiquitous. We all know their stories. We especially know their famous last line “and they all lived happily ever after.” But that is not real life… life goes on, it is hard and tough, it is full of unpredictable challenges.

In Unhappily Ever After, we follow the lives of 12 fairy tale characters after the end of their story, as they try to return to normality ans day to day life. How does Sleeping Beauty cope with living in a world she barely recognises? How does Jack handle the social media backlash after killing the giant? Can Peter Pan come to terms with the aging process? Find the answer to these questions and many more in Unhappily Ever After.

Warning to parents: whilst the show contains no foul language, it does touch on some more adult themes and may not be suitable for very young children. We recommend ages of 10+. If you are unsure, this is the rudest poem in the show: https://youtu.be/5U3xri6TVjA?si=Cax9fG_tRj-eDK8P
