A bruised princess teeters through a commuter town car park on broken stilettos, the juice of a poisoned apple dripping through her fingers.
High up in a tower, golden curls tumble to the floor and a girl clambers out into the night on sweat-knotted sheets.
This is a show about the stories which make us. A punk feminist quest to explode the tales which trap us. It’s about sex and love and power and choosing. About knowing where and when you begin because you choose to begin there. It’s about the girls we were and the women we will become.
Join Bait on a glitterbomb rave through tall tales and urban myths old and new, battling into the bright lights of the long, dark ever after.
Scratch performances of Kill The Princess have taken place at the Leytonstone Festival, Machine No.3, So:To Speak Festival in Southampton.
Bait is developing Kill The Princess with support from Trestle Theatre in St Albans, Bathway Theatre in Woolwich and the Cambridge Junction.
