Cinderella: A Christmas Panto
written by Catherine Morrison
Metro Theatre, Vancouver
December 15 - January 6, 2018

A version of the familiar fairytale is transported into modern day Canada. Taking inspiration from Ken Lum’s Vancouver Especially, the set places the three sisters in a tiny affordable house. Marrying the prince is the only option left to solve their housing problem. The set provides a contemporary backdrop to the story, mixing classical theatre technique like the use of scale models and forced perspective, with modern commentary on social issues, such as characterless and replaceable urban developments.
