Small Enchantments

Dark Comedy


12 Princesses sneak out to a Ball every night. Or so they say. You see, their father locks them in the palace. Some say he’s overprotective, others say he’s evil. Either way, 12 young women are trapped. And where is their Mother, you might wonder? Oh, their Mother is a dying tree and their aunt a moody river.

But these are 12 most unusual young women. These are fierce Princesses unlike any you’ve met before. Can they free themselves? What will it take?

SMALL ENCHANTMENTS is an apocalyptic fairy tale for our times.

A note on casting this play:
I wrote this play with the intent to include. Help me redefine who gets to be a Princess. Please invite a myriad of skin colors, body shapes, and genders to participate.

The palace, the forest, the ball, the city

A long time ago. Also, now.
