Cinderella’s Ugly Sisters have their say at Leeds Playhouse

Fairy tales are always ripe for retellings of the original story and this time it is Cinderella’s Ugly Sisters who get to tell their side of the story at Leeds Playhouse.

The Not So Ugly Sisters, created by Leeds-based theatre company Wrongsemble in co-production with Leeds Playhouse and Red Ladder Theatre Company, is a family friendly show where there are always two sides to every story.   

Dolly is resting on her broom counting the passers-by outside the salon window, while her sister Barb watches the phone that never rings. It’s the morning of Cindy and Prince Smarming’s big royal wedding – but Dolly and Barb are not invited – and Hell hath no fury like a hairdresser scorned.

Leeds actors Daisy Ann Fletcher and Lucy Rafton star as the hairdressing step-sisters of Cinderella.  

Daisy is a Playhouse Youth Theatre alumni returning to Leeds following roles in Cinderfella, Alice in Weegieland and Pinocchio at Birmingham Old Rep. Lucy most recently worked with Unsung Collective and Lisa Holdsworth creating the foundations for a new immersive play about roller derby.

The Not So Ugly Sisters is in the Courtyard Theatre from 2nd – 5th June.
