Cardiff, 1913. Christmas Eve. Stevie’s mum is a Suffragette, fighting for the right to vote. But Stevie just wants to fit in. Meanwhile, in the Grimmdom, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel are waiting for their Happy Ever After.

But when a storm transports Stevie to this magic land, things begin to change. None of the stories are happening like they were supposed to. Will everything end in disaster? Or can Stevie save the Grimmdom and find her own Once Upon a Time?

Inspired by the famous fairy tales, Hannah McPake reimagines the world of the Brothers Grimm. Full of songs and laughter, this spectacular new Christmas show is performed by an exceptional cast of actor musicians.
