Rapunzel’s hair is out of control. It doesn’t matter what she does with it, it’ll never stay in one place. As Rapunzel comes of age, her loving but overbearing mother locks her in a tower to protect her from the world beyond their garden. But, like her hair, Rapunzel is not one to be contained. With the help of a wild pig, her hapless lover, and some bumbling criminal types, Rapunzel will put her world, and the world beyond, to rights.
The colours and chaos of the blooming garden surrounding Rapunzel’s tower burst into the beautiful auditorium of the Citizens Theatre, created by the design team behind the 5-star A Christmas Carol. An abundance of colourful characters run amok through the sunny Italian countryside, played by a motley troupe of actors performing original songs and music live on stage.
