Hex

a new musical based on Sleeping Beauty
book by Tanya Ronder, music by Jim Fortune and lyrics by Rufus Norris

From 4 Dec
Running Time: TBC

Hex

The true story of the bad fairy.

Deep in the wood, a lonely fairy longs for someone to bless.

When she is summoned to the palace to help the princess sleep, her dream turns into a nightmare and her blessing becomes a curse.

Soon, she is plunged into a frantic, hundred-year quest to somehow make everything right.

Rosalie Craig plays the fairy in this vividly original retelling of Sleeping Beauty: a mythic, big-hearted new musical that goes beyond the waking kiss.

Rufus Norris directs with music by Jim Fortune, book by Tanya Ronder, designs by Katrina Lindsay and choreography by Jade Hackett.

Recommended for ages 8+
