about the production

Tangles? Split Ends? Frizzy? Flyaway? It’s hard enough having a bad hair day but pity poor Rapunzel spending her life in a tower with a wicked old witch using her captive’s locks as a step ladder! What sort of damage is that going to do to your hair? Theatre of Widdershins have taken this Grimm tale right back to its dark roots, teased out the tangles and styled it into a beautifully coiffured hair piece! This enchanting show promises plenty of body, volume and loads of highlights. Make an appointment to see the show today – because you’re worth it!!!

Each year, Bedfordshire-based storyteller and puppeteer, Andy Lawrence packs up his bag of tricks and heads to the Fringe. And each year, on arrival, he unpacks a 5-star show filled with unique surprises. Happily, this year is no different. Rapunzel and the Tower of Doom follows in the beautifully-crafted footsteps of Lawrence’s previous masterworks, The Kings Got Donkey’s Ears, Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Elves and the Shoemaker. His storytelling manner is warm and friendly, peppered with a few good jokes and some intentionally groan-worthy puns. But what really sets Lawrence apart are his sets.
