One day the most handsome Prince Henry, who dreams of a life less spare, wears a disguise to the Market and falls instantly in love with Cinderella.


With the paparazzi in hot pursuit the Prince is forced to flee. And so begins the quest to unite the unlikeliest of likely romances, Cinderella and the hapless Prince. But will Cinderella’s step-sisters Muffy and Gusset and step-mother Lady Jelly Bottom get in the way of their happily ever after?


This year, Lyric Hammersmith Theatre brings audiences Cinderella with a twist thanks to award-winning writer and composer Vikki Stone and director Tonderai Munyevu.
