Beauty and the Beast will never get on.
Beast licks his hands, stands on the toilet and runs through the woods.
Beauty is the kind of girl who knows how to behave. Be polite, always smile, and never let anyone know what you're thinking.
No. Beauty and the beast will never get on.
So why, when she sees him run like that, when he brings down a deer, when they sit at night just watching the stars, why does she feel like that? Why does her heart start racing, thumping on the walls inside, beating behind her eyes? And why does he look at her like that?
A story about two people trapped together, and finding more freedom than they've ever known.
This is not a fairytale. This is a story about a beauty and a beast.
Caged was a new version of the classic tale Beauty and the Beast, created for Catherine Wheels which toured throughout Scotland in Spring 2011.
