Theatre group RashDash will be telling the story of the most notorious villains in fairytale history tomorrow.

Sisters Emerald and Pearl (played by Abbi Greenland and Helen Goalen, who co-direct) have to move in with their mum’s weird new husband and are cast aside in favour of their new and perfect stepsister.

When they’re selected for reality show You Shall Go To The Ball, the sisters try to win back the love of their mother, Prince Frederick and the whole country.

The show, pictured above, is a harsh look at media representations, public approval and sexism.

Abbi Greenland said: “The Daily Mail sidebar of shame has 52 million monthly users. This is the world where ‘ugly’ is the worst thing you can call a woman.

“We don’t want to be princesses. We don’t want to debate Nigella’s motives for wearing a Burkini on the beach. We just want to stop hearing the same old story.”
