Miscellaneous notes from the author
British pantomime - a Cinderella sequel. Two acts in structure, but on the boundary between a one-act and full-length show in run-time.
A year has passed since Cinderella became Queen. Buttons has the catering contract for Prince Charming's Ball and he employs Ciabatta and Cappuccino, the ugly sisters who have returned in disguise, as cooks. Cinderella's stepmother, Elvira, has taken a correspondence course and is now a powerful fairy, able to defeat the Fairy Godmother. Cinderella ends up as a scullery maid, unable to speak, and with the name Linda, and Buttons falls in love all over again. Who can restore the balance of magic and save the day?
