Angela Carter’s The Tiger’s Bride – Oxford Playhouse, 11-16 September 2017

Marvellous Machine will be performing their stage adaptation of Angela Carter’s ‘The Tiger’s Bride’ at the Oxford Playhouse, 11-16 September 2017.

‘The Tiger’s Bride’ is one of Carter’s marvellous transformations of the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ tale in her famous collection of radical fairy tale reworkings, The Bloody Chamber. I have to point out–pedantically, I know–that the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ tale is not by Charles Perrault (as the web page says), but by Madame de Villeneuve–the seventeenth-century women writers of fairy tales do not get the attention they deserve.
