Exclusively for adult audiences, Rapunzel After Dark is a bold retelling of a well-known fairytale by one of the world’s leading feminist poets, Carol Ann Duffy.
It is a story for those who have a passion for the horror and hope in humanity, and is told from the perspective of the Wife, her Husband and a solitary gardening Witch, all of whom share a profound grief-stricken longing for a child.
Rapunzel After Dark is experienced through dance, incredibly emotional performances, exceptional design, music and narration by a collection of world-class collaborators; former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, award-winning composer Murray Gold (Doctor Who; Gentlemen Jack; It’s A Sin), and Michele Clapton, award-winning Costume Designer (Game of Thrones; The Crown; Mamma Mia). The score is performed by Royal Northern Sinfonia.
Full of colour and emotion, this spellbinding retelling is narrated by leading British actor Lesley Sharp (The Full Monty; Scott and Bailey; Three Girls) and is choreographed and directed by Liv Lorent MBE.
Contains scenes of a sexual nature, partial nudity as well as visuals depicting blood, grief, issues surrounding fertility and child loss.
The performance is one Act.
