Cinderina and the Corridors of Power
Cinderina and the Corridors of Power
By Joanna Hempel.

Cast: 7m., 8w. (1 boy, 1 girl, extras as desired.) Enchanting in its wit, wisdom and absurdity, this fractured fairy tale turns convention on its head with a modern and morally redeeming twist. When a troubled Queen tastes Cinderina's apple cinnamon cake, she asks Cinderina to promise to make her another for her son's 21st birthday. The cake sets off an avalanche of events, upsetting the powers that be. You'll see your favorite characters—the ugly sisters and that devious duchess, conniving in the corridors with a wiley Lord Chancellor and a mad chef who insists on putting glue in all his dishes. To save the castle's tourist industry, the prince announces a cake competition, to be judged at his birthday ball! When Hans, the castle's garbage man, is suspected of pilfering from the chef's kitchen, Cinderina has to find ingredients for her special cake some other way, Gunter, a village boy, and his mother and sisters rally. It is not magic but a people's creative faith in themselves that wins in the end. From one of Australia's leading writers for young audiences, this charming play is an allegory with fun and romance for the young and deeper lessons for all of us about power, ambition, optimism, trendiness, and self-doubt. "Studded with absurd occurrences and delightful characters with all the freshness of the commedia, this is a clever piece from beginning to end." (Australia's Lowdown Performing Arts Magazine) Bare stage w/props.
