Beauty of the Dreaming Wood


Marian Jonson

Published by Dramatic Publishing

Large Mixed Cast
In this version things do not just happen to Sleeping Beauty and the other characters but are precipitated by her, by her parents, the king and queen, and by the prince

The king and queen are informal, fun-loving parents. The pricked finger is a deliberate and dramatic act, and the basic conflict between good and evil is modern in its implications, as is the rescue of Beauty from her long sleep

A happy bridge between contemporary life and the folk wisdom of the fairy tale

Cast of M9,F11
