My father lost me to the Beast at cards…

Having fled abjection in Russia, Beauty and her father arrive in a small Italian village to find that all who come here must play a hand with La Bestia. After her father makes a very ill-advised bet, Beauty must come to terms with a frightening new home, a surprising offer, and a most unusual Beast.

Based on Angela Carter’s short story, The Tiger’s Bride is a modern reworking of Charles Perrault’s Beauty and the Beast, for adults.Turning the conventional fairy-tale on its head, this is a story of desire, rebirth and embracing the Beast in all of us.
