As a reluctant little girl settles into bed to hear her Grandfather read his favorite book to her, the story of Wesley, Buttercup and Inigo Montoya (you killed his father prepare to die) comes to life in her bedroom. Bed sheets become oceans, toy chests become castle walls, and a cast of nine transforms into the entire kingdom of Florin. ItŐs a world full of "Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. And miracles." The Princess Bride is back after a sold-out workshop at the Westport Coffee House last summer. The Princess Bride is loosely based on the novel by William Goldman and pays tribute to the iconic MGM film. The play was created through a collaborative writing-on-your-feet process by Hersh Ellis and the nine original cast members, many of whom are returning for this yearŐs production. At its core, The Princess Bride is a tribute to storytelling and the timeless tradition of creating something out of nothing.
