Rosey Snow is a perfectly normal 1980’s teen who’s stuck in a life that is by turns funny and a bit demented. She has an attention-hungry stepmother, two stepsisters – one who’s perpetually depressed and one who’s not too bright, and a father who just can’t seem to find his pants. Throw in a bewildered prince, a nervous troll, an eccentric fairy godmother, and a possibly homicidal village idiot, and you’ve got an improbable fairy tale that ends up turning the whole Cinderella archetype on its head. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in this hilarious story that’s fun for the whole family.
