Description

There’s a queen, a girl, a huntsman, a mirror, an act of jealousy, a poison apple and a deadly axe. It’s everything you recognise, but nothing you’d expect.

When the Queen is faced with the same threat that ignited her own rise to power, she sets out to do anything to protect her throne. She is soon, however, faced with the ugly truth that the real question isn’t how far is she willing to go to maintain her control, but was she ever in control to begin with? We all know the Queen rules the board, but who is playing whom? This version of the classic tale interrogates what it means to be a woman, a girl, a daughter and a mother. It asks us who defines beauty and at what cost do we live a life defined by the gaze of others?

This Snow White isn’t a gentle story to lull the children to sleep, but rather a darkly sexual and humorous look into power and who actually wields it.
