Traditional fairy tales all had dark undertones, some more so than others, and what MONSTORUS BEAUTY does is to make us think about the 'what ifs' of each tale. What if the huntsman had carried out his terrible quest for the queen, what if Rapunzel was trapped in a tower because she was dangerous to those who came near, what if the sleeping princess waiting for a prince's kiss needs that kiss for more than true love?
Despite the short length of these tales, they are pitched quite perfectly. Yes, they leave you wanting more, but isn't that what all good stories should do?
