Cinders: The Folk Tale
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The childrens play this year is based on a compilation of the many folk tales from around the world that were the origins of the tale of Cinderella. These tales were told to children around the camp fire in countries such as Ireland, Scotland and Germany, and by travelling folk. Some of these original stories are very dark in places. Our play, however, is very family friendly and not too gruesome. An outdoor promenade performance through the beautiful Duddingston Kirk gardens. Original music and songs, and audience participation.
