the tiger’s bride

“My father lost me to the Beast at cards”

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. 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.

Turning the conventional fairy-tale on its head, The Tiger’s Bride is a story of desire, rebirth and embracing the Beast in all of us.
