The tale contains a cast of characters including an ambivalent Cinderella, a bloodthirsty Little Red Ridinghood and a Prince Charming with a roving eye. When a baker and his wife learn the witch next door has cursed them with childlessness. They embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell that includes, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results.
What begins, as a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of "The Princess Bride" becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
