an audio adaptation of the Brother’s Grimm version – by Hothouse Theatre

Cinderella, also going by the name of Ashputtle or The Glass Slipper, has many variants across the world.

It is believed to have originated from a Greek story, Rhodopis, which tells the tale of a slave girl who ends up marrying the King of Egypt. This story dates from around 2,000 years ago.

The version of Cinderella that Hothouse Theatre have adapted here is from the English translation of the story collected by Brothers Grimm and first published in 1812.

Although it carries the same name as the story that is the basis of modern pantomimes and various Disney versions, this story is a bit different, being somewhat darker.
