Presented by Out of the Bag Productions at Playlovers Theatre in Floreat, The Broken Slipper is a black comedy about Cinderella facing the Fairytale Tribunal after breaking the rules by not marrying Prince Charming.

Also featuring Red Riding Hood’s grandma, a menopausal Snow White and Hansel and Gretel’s wicked witch, the play picked up a swag of awards at the 2014 Dramafest (the annual state drama festival), including best new writing, director and overall production.

“I don’t always like playing by the rules myself,” writer Yvette Wall said. “As someone who married, divorced and remarried my husband, ‘to thine own self be true’ is my favourite saying – within reason of course.

“Through the dramatic antics of these wonderful fairytale characters, we see the appeal of living happily ever after but at what price?”

Alida Chaney jumped at the chance to direct The Broken Slipper and, after its initial success, various people suggested it should be part of Fringe World.

“The play is already tried and tested and I’ve concentrated a lot on visual physicality and total ridicule to make it even more humorous,” she said.

“But it’s not all about humour – there’s a very powerful message in the dialogue, which came across to everyone who previously saw it.”

The Broken Slipper plays at 8.45pm February 19, 20, 21 and 22 with a 3.15pm matinee February 22. Tickets are $20 – book at http://www.fringeworld.com.au/program/event/0ed5e1ca-0279-458f-9798-720d7df3a957/.

It follows A Piece of Cake, a comedic historical romp about Marie Antoinette, also written by Wall and directed by Chaney at 7.30pm on the same dates.

Playlovers is located at Hackett Hall.

Fringe World Festival 2015 will be held from January 23 to February 22.
