In this modern day masterpiece, legendary composer Stephen Sondheim takes everyone's favourite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, touching and poignant exploration of family, morality and the mysteries of life. 

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

Come with us for an unforgettable journey into the woods, at the Hayward Street Theatre for a limited season this August!
