Rapunzel, as you've never seen her before!

Chickenshed is delighted to present Rapunzel in a new and exciting version of the well-loved fairy tale. Mysterious, romantic and life-affirming, this will be a dramatic re-telling of a story you thought you knew!

Getting free of the tower was only the start of the adventure - as she makes her way in the Wild Woods, where she is now forced to make her home, the feisty Rapunzel draws all manner of wonderful characters and creatures to her as she learns the lessons she needs to survive and thrive. Her famous long hair may give her incredible abilities, but Rapunzel soon realises that her true strength comes from within, and through each challenge she becomes stronger - and more certain of her path.

Featuring Chickenshed's famously large and amazingly diverse cast, this magical, musical and mysterious version of Rapunzel will dazzle and delight children and adults alike.
