Acclaimed French playwright/director, JoŽl Pommeratís adult re-envisioning of the Cinderella fable gets its (unofficial) English-language world premiere (its official one will take place at New York Theatre Workshop in Spring 2014) at the URís International Theatre Program in October 2013. Both funny and heartbreaking, Pommeratís Cinderella gets to the heart of the fableís underlying power. It asks us to confront the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive the travails of the present, and how, in letting go of the past, we can open up our future to hopes, desires and dreams we can barely imagine.
