Genre: Comedy, Drama
Written by Caroline Angell, Directed by Anais Koivisto

Be careful who you leave off the list...

What happens when you wake up one morning and 100 years have passed you by? How do you protect your children in a world where fairies have fangs and curses can kill? What do we do when "ever after" isn't so happy after all? And what's the best way to keep your Horse's snotty attitude in check? Join us as we unravel the answers to these universal questions (and more!) in a thrilling blend of theatre, music, movement, and shadow play. 
 
This May, at the historic Jan Hus theatre, Everyday Inferno brings Caroline Angell’s modern new adaptation of the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale to life. Weaving together the narratives of Perrault, Basile, and The Brothers Grimm, this re-imagining explores the dark (and occasionally hilarious) corners of a story we all thought we'd heard before. (This production contains mature themes and material and is geared toward an adult audience).
 
EVERYDAY INFERNO THEATRE COMPANY is devoted to creating adventurous theatrical productions of both new and classic texts. We seek to exceed the conventional limitations of low-budget theatre by exploring nontraditional spaces, stagecraft, and storytelling. We are committed to developing a diverse audience by producing work that is large in scope while keeping our production costs (and ticket prices) at a minimum.
