Take a smidge of magic, add some action, love and humour, attach a smattering of puppetry, a mix of video and physical theatre, and you have the ingredients for this unforgettable spell.
Girl loves boy, boy loves girl, fairies get involved, boy falls for girl’s best friend. Add to this an awful bunch of amateur actors, a barney between the king and queen of the fairies and a shape changing transformation; place it in modern day Greece against the backdrop of economic collapse and viola! The perfect mix of havoc, comedy and romance for a rollercoaster performance.
