An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch…who raps? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in this Tony Award-winning, fractured fairy tale. When a Baker and his Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying, and stealing to get them. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
