Burlesque Fairytales, the debut feature film from Double Barrel Productions.
Welcome to Burlesque Fairytales, a night of revelation at Wiltons Theatre.
At least thats what it says on the flyer. But this 1940s fashionable London audience is in for a surprise. Things are not what they seem at Wiltons and slowly it dawns on them that this is indeed no ordinary night at the theatre. The audience can not remember how they got there, now that theyve arrived; the doors to the theatre are bolted shut. They are trapped inside. The audience convinced that sorcery is at play, are too frightened to make a stand; the compere of the show acts as both guide and tormentor. As the film progresses in real time, the stage play hosts five Burlesque fairytales. In these tales a mixture of stage, film, animation, giant set pieces and the elements playing out inside the theatre create a fantastical story-telling experience. At the heart of each tale is an important message for the audience members. This is personal!
