Description The story of Cinderella is frequently cited in beauty-myth literature as a microcosm
of the myth. This fairy tale has it all, ugly sisters, and even bodily mutilation in the name of beauty, as the ugly sisters saw off their toes to fit the perversely tiny glass sliper. The prince notices the blood, and the natural beauty wins...the chorus are there to represent real women. Inspired by the writings of Naomi Wolf, Ramona Koval and Babette Cole, the play explores the way women find they can damage their own perceptions of themselves.
