If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea’, you may be in for a walloping surprise!
Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab?
Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that shereach the bridal altar post haste?
Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night?
Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans.
Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
