In the dead of the night, the moon is hiding behind a cloud, and deep in the dark, dark forest two children are lost...

How are we ever going to get out of this enormous forest?

A young girl lies down in the dirty ashes. Her stepsisters, with hearts as ugly as thorns, snigger at her.

Shake your leaves and branches, little tree, 
Shower gold and silver down on me. 

The voice of Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy echoes through your favourite fairy tales. Dramatised by the successful theatre director Tim Supple and directed by Theatr Iolo’s Kevin Lewis with a healthy dose of magic, gore and squelch for the whole family!
