The Princess Initiative
  • Edinburgh Fringe

There's an old saying, 'Never meet your heroes'. Now, from the pen of 17 year old Niamh Simpson comes the relatively newer, but nonetheless true phrase, 'Never meet your childhood animated heroines'. When a former Disney Princess goes off the rails, it is up to one therapist to ensure others do not follow. Probing the happy endings we have come to know and love, she discovers the influence of feminist theory, Marxism and murder instead. It's a fairy tale, but not as you know it.
