Trailer: Rumpelstiltskin

Performance & Dance


See the UK premiere of this fantastic fairy tale, with theatrical spectacle, rocking music and supreme silliness.

Full of twists and turns, it’s a whole new spin on a heart of gold sure to delight the whole family this winter.

Spinning straw into gold is a party trick that will take you far. It can buy you a big house full of beautiful things, a wardrobe of designer clothes and a life of total luxury, but money, as they say, can’t buy you everything.

Two people, once best friends, are torn apart by desire for the things they cannot have. This is the story of the ultimate price of greed.

The exquisitely mercurial Australian singer and cabaret star Paul Capsis stars as a shape-shifting imp whose thirst for vengeance may well undo him.

A Windmill Theatre Company and State Theatre Company South Australia production.
