Synopsis

TWAS Theatre's Rapunzel is a fantastically fun adaptation of the classic Grimm Fairytale. After a pregnant lady is caught stealing tomatoes from her patch, the Wicked Witch places a curse on her. Rapunzel is born but immediately taken away from her parents in penance of the lady's crimes. She grows up in a secluded tower; her only company her own reflection in a mirror. As time goes by we see The Kappa Guild, a group of keen explorers, set themselves the task to save Rapunzel and return her to her family.
