An enthusiastic, self-confident actress commands what needs to be done. Move the piano! Grab the glass slippers!

A simple story with a sad start and a happy ending.
Unfortunately, the director for this performance doesn't understand much of the story. How can you show all the roles of Cinderella with only two dancers: father, Cinderella, step-sisters, step-mother, the good fairy, the prince ...?

To ensure that the performance runs smoothly, the director decides to stay with the performance and play the stepmother and the good fairy herself. She also takes care of many other things. A mule, a chest, clothes, a broom, a chimney, a carriage and a clock. But what to do with a pumpkin, mice and rats in a theater?
The director has a lot to think about. 

She is hurled from sad to cheerful, from angry to insecure, confused, hurt and moved. She increasingly doubts about the outcome. She no longer knows the story ... Who helps her further?
