an adult fairytale world where the beauty of
a person's feet and the glamour of their
shoes determines how they fit into society,
Celerity, a half-mad, big-footed misfit,
hides shamefaced in the depths of an
uninhabited forest. When her
highly-favored half-sister comes of age,
Celerity returns home, expecting her to be
presented to society in golden shoes.
However, when society chooses not to
allow the family's favored daughter to be
presented at all, Celerity discovers that
nothing in her family is as it has seemed.
She confronts the hard truths that
caused her to doubt her own mind in the
first place and faces a challenge that will
either enable her to become a part of
society or leave her wandering madly through
the forest for the remainder of her life.
The play is being hailed as "breathtaking."
"With amazing dialogue half-spoken,
half-sung to the ever-watchful public, Ms.
Guerin creates a life and society that is
sinister and new, yet alarmingly familiar."
play "...captures how it feels to be
screaming on the inside, but still sing-song

The piece will be performed by the
talented Vivien Lyon, Madeleine Delaplane,
