The Lost Happy Endings

User symbolFor everyone

An original story by Carol Ann Duffy, created and produced by balletLORENT.

What happens when the Happy Endings are stolen?

Deep in the forest lives Jub, a magical girl with six fingers on each hand. Her job is to guard the Happy Endings to stories and fairytales. But one day an otherworldly Witch steals them, and at bedtime the stories are destroyed...

Cinderella’s foot is now too big for the glass slipper…Little Red Riding Hood is gobbled up by the wolf…and Pinocchio’s nose never stops growing!

As the Witch starts a monstrous fire with her stolen Happy Endings it is up to Jub to rewrite them and let children dream of new and surprising endings.

Full of energy, emotion and visual magic this family show is the one to watch.

Original score composed by Murray Gold, with set design by Neil Murray, costume design by Nasir Mazhar and narrated by Joanna Lumley.

Premiering at Northern Stage, Newcastle upon Tyne in October 2019, and touring nationally in 2020.
