She’s the queen of her castle, the mistress of mischief. With big hair and even bigger dreams, Rapunzel’s curls fizz like fireworks and her imagination roams wild and free.  She invents the best games, paints the brightest pictures, jumps the highest, runs the fastest. But then - there isn't much competition when you're always on your own.

Rapunzel stands out. Or she would, if anyone was there to see her.  But she’s been told that, just like her hair, she needs to be tamed before she can get ahead. The outside world just isn’t ready for her yet.

Meanwhile, across the city, all the young Prince wants is to be on his own. Overshadowed by his brother, he’s never fitted in and he knows he’ll never be the King everyone expects.  On the evening of his coronation party he makes a run for it – straight to a lonely tower in the woods. 

Could this shy boy be the key to Rapunzel’s freedom? Or is the world too much of a scary place to be yourself?

Let your hair down this Christmas and join Saltmine Theatre Company’s unexpectedly twisty tall tale as we unravel the knots of being different, being free – and being yourself.
