Once Upon a Mattress
A whimsical, fractured telling classic fairytale of the "The Princess and The Pea," with Prince Dauntless: the handsome hero, desperate to find a wife. Dozens of woman have been tested and rejected as unsuitable by his mother, Queen Aggravian, who insists her son must marry a "true princess." The prince comes upon the lovable and definitely not shy – Princess Winnifred, but the Queen is appalled and conspires to cook up a test for "sensitivity" to get rid of her. What about a pea under 20 mattresses?
