BOOKINGS PH 801 4176

Princess Alicia is no kindy - teacher virgin with an interest in fashion!

Foul mouthed and full of herself she rides through the forest, abusing her servant and texting her mates. Belonging to a family who owns the land as far as can be seen, she finds herself one night having to face those who own nothing – and the battle is on!

SuperBeast is an outraged and outrageous black comedy mixing medieval fairy tale and contemporary concerns into an hilarious and explosive concoction.

‘The symbols and archetypes of fairy tale are as relevant now as ever” says writer Sarah Delahunty, “ they can add new perspectives and humour to the telling of present day tales”

The second in Delahunty’s Biting Myth Trilogy which began in Fringe 2005 with “Eating The Wolf,” SuperBeast has a large cast of young Wellington actors playing a wide range of characters both human and animal who also at times break into song!

A musical take on the terrors of today set in the magical forests of yesteryear.
