About Cinderella

“Welcome to Brixton Lane! You know it - that road between Coldharbour and Brixton Hill, behind the old man’s pub and next to the hot yoga, round the corner from the station and a stone’s throw from the lido.” Set in the fictional Brixton Lane, rooted in the heart of its local community, Brixton House’s musical Cinderella follows Sindi-Ella as she journeys through the streets of modern-day Brixton and reminds us of the beauty of community spirit in an overwhelming online world! Following their five-star award-winning 2022 Christmas production Alice in Wonderland, which received seven nominations and won Best Newcomer at the Offies 2022, this year Brixton House continues their brand of locally inspired alternative Christmas productions, reworking the classic rags-to-riches tale, to reflect the community that Brixton House firmly sits within. Writer Danusia Samal throws out the glass slippers and pumpkins to recreate a world where Sindi-Ella takes us through the streets of Brixton on a journey of loss and loneliness to rediscover how friendship, love, family and community spirit can make all the difference. Samal’s Sindi-Ella is a plant-loving teenager attempting to save her father’s struggling greengrocers and navigating the complexities of growing up in a frenzied social media society, can teenage entrepreneur Charmz help her find her place? Just like her dad, Brixton’s most beloved greengrocer, Sindi-Ella loves plants and growing things. It’s a welcome distraction from the turbulence of growing up and grieving the loss of her father… not that Sindi wants to talk about that. Stuck with her bougie step-mum and her South London hating step-sister, Sindi’s only got her trusty delphinium to talk to. Until a chance meeting with Charmz, Brixton’s biggest influencer, sparks something unexpected… Meanwhile in a state-of-the art newbuild across the way, Charmz is sick of living their life online and is looking for a meaningful connection. What better way than to host a party? Sindi is desperate to go. But with trouble brewing at home, can she make it to the ball? Perhaps her loyal house plants can help? Full of beats to dance to, songs to sing along to, and bars to make you go “OI!”, this retelling of Cinderella is a local story – a tale of overcoming loss with the help of friendship, family, and community spirit.
