Red Earth Theatre is joining forces with mac (Midlands Arts Centre) Birmingham in a co-production of The Lost Happy Endings, a truly compelling, surprising and beautiful story for children of all ages by Award-Winning Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.
Jub’s job is important and she is very proud of it. She collects and sends out the Happy Endings from all the stories in the world in time for everybody’s bedtime. But one night she is caught by a wicked witch who steals all of the happy endings... What if the shoe didn’t fit Cinderella? What if the prince’s kiss didn’t awaken Snow White? What if the big bad wolf gobbled up Little Red Riding Hood?
Wiser and cleverer than the witch, Jub dreams up a perfect plan to outwit her, and like all good fairy tales, this one has a happy ending.
This deeply imaginative and wonderfully inventive story by the nation’s favourite writer and best-loved poet is brought to the stage by Red Earth Theatre and mac. Red Earth’s trademark humour, energy and ingenuity promises a delightful show with puppets, music, dance and lots of surprises.
