EXPLiCIT: The Ash Girl
The Caltech Players are proud to present The Ash Girl, by Timberlake Wertenbaker.
A modern feminist retelling of the Cinderella fable exploring relationships, social pressure, and the importance of finding self confidence, the play features a reimagined step-mother and step-sisters, a prince from a distant land, and animal avatars of the Seven Deadly Sins.
Directed by Miranda Stewart, it is appropriate for all ages.
Performances run Friday through Sunday, August 11‑13, and Thursday through Saturday, August 17‑19. All performances begin at 8:00 p.m.
