Cinderella Ashputtel


“She had no bed to lie down on, but was made to lie by the hearth among the ashes; and then, as she was of course always dusty and dirty, they called her Ashputtel.”
The Brothers Grimm

Enter a world where a shoe becomes a woman, a hat stand a tree, and a stool and broom combine to create a horse in front of your eyes. Cinderella Ashputtel is a one-woman show set to a swinging musical soundtrack that fuses traditionally crafted puppets with the transformation of ordinary objects through inventive design and animation.

Banyan Theatre’s stylish and playful reworking of the Cinderella story explores its powerful fascination in a fresh and imaginative adaptation, which will delight both young and old.



“Banyan strip away the Disney-glitz to reveal a plucky heroine who is both witty and charming.”
The Scotsman
