moons ago in a far off place lived a handsome prince with a gloomy face... You
might think that you know the story of The Princess and the Pea, but you probably
don't know the REAL story which is the subject of this highly entertaining musical
music written by Mary Rodgers, the daughter of the great Richard Rodgers, the
score brims with memorable tunes and the stage teems with eccentric characters
- a talkative queen, a cursed king, a whole bunch of frustrated knights and ladies,
minstrels, jesters, wizards, a lonely prince and, of course the fair princess.
Upon a Mattress is the latest offering from the Phoenix Theatre Company, who delighted
audiences a year ago with the Cole Porter musical Red Hot and Cole. This time,
the setting has been skilfully altered from a sophisticated cocktail party to
the towers and moats of a fairytale castle.
and find out what really happened!
