Written by Katie McCann (Cirque des Reves) Once upon a time there were two brothers, the Grimms, that wrote down a folklore story they had heard about a poor damsel in distress, Ella. In their story, Ella lived a miserable existence with her cruel step-mother and wicked step-sisters. She was forced to cook, clean and relentlessly tend to her mean family until she was saved by the handsome Prince. But sometimes story tellers don’t tell the truth...

Based on the popular world folklore tale.
Written by Katie McCann (Cirque des Reves)

Lost, tired and out of their depth, brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm stumble upon a cabin in the woods and seek shelter.

Trapped there for the night the brothers regale the inhabitants, a young girl and her grandmother, with the stories they have gathered on their travels. Stories they believe will make them best sellers and famous the world over.

But the grandmother too has a tale to tell, about a girl named Ella, her cruel stepmother, a handsome prince and the night that would change her life forever. However this is not the story the brothers expect. No, no this is the real story of the girl who became known as Cinderella...
