“Everyone in Cuzco wants to sell some mystery“
In a bid to save their relationship a Spanish couple travel to Cuzco – conquistador stronghold, Inca city of the puma and tourist paradise. But as the altitude sickness, pisco sours and layers of history take hold, they realise their journey has only just begun.

2018-2018 | Chichester Festival Theatre | directed by Lucy Betts
A princess under a fairy’s curse pricks her finger on a spindle and sleeps for a hundred years, waiting to be woken by a prince’s kiss.
But hold on a moment. There’s a distinctly different slant to this story. The princess is beautiful and spirited but there are two princes and a lot of threatening thorns. As for the fairy who caused all the trouble in the first place – well, putting things right isn’t as simple as casting another spell.
Rufus Norris’s splendidly entertaining and mischievous version of the original fairy tale ventures beyond the usual ‘happy ever after’ ending with the prince and princess united. The course of true love never did run smooth – especially if your mother-in-law is an ogress with an unfortunate taste for human flesh...Read more
