Exclusively for adult audiences, Rapunzel After Dark is a bold retelling of a well-known fairytale by one of the world’s leading feminist poets, Carol Ann Duffy.

It is a story for those who have a passion for the horror and hope in humanity, and is told from the perspective of the Wife, her Husband and a solitary gardening Witch, all of whom share a profound grief-stricken longing for a child.

From former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, award-winning composer Murray Gold (Doctor Who; Gentlemen Jack; It’s A Sin) and Michele Clapton, award- winning costume designer (Game of Thrones; The Crown; Mamma Mia). The score is performed by Royal Northern Sinfonia.

Narrated by leading British actor Lesley Sharp (The Full Monty; Scott and Bailey; Three Girls) and choreographed and directed by Liv Lorent MBE.
