Cinderella. Revolution. Who knew two ideas could be so compatible? A young woman breaks a mould she didn’t realise she was confined to and finds a new way to tell the world’s most famous fairy tale. Aisling Kiely presents a funny, thought-provoking, sexily-skewed retelling of Cinderella. Feminist burlesque, it’s a call to arms for a revolution that has yet to be. For anyone who knows a woman or dresses like one.

Whether as androgynous fairy godmother, Eve – our middle class, modern day Cinderella – or Eve’s slightly older, abrasive flatmate Alice, Aisling held the audience spellbound as we watched Eve fumble her way through the revelation that maybe her expectations dreams and wishes aren’t really hers at all. And if they’re not…? With just herself and a handful of props Aisling Kiely delivers a show that is visually striking, humerous and thought provoking. The hour speeds by leaving you re-enthused by The Fringe and delighted to have found one of the gems shining brightly in the multitude.
