Arising Beauty is a facetious retelling of the account of Sleeping Beauty. In this tall tale turned out badly, Aurora's wicked stepmother intercedes to bewitch the Prince into using so as to fall in love with her instead, she uses a spell to hide her ghastly appearance. Confronted with rejection once the spell wears off and the Prince sees her actual looks, the fiendish stepmother experiences a compelling makeover in the hopes that it will present to her own glad completion.

The musical was composed by Olivier and Tony Award winning writer, Alan Ayckbourn, and author Denis King. It brings up issues about cutting edge society's stories about excellence and upbeat endings, and investigates the significance (or deficiency in that department) of appearance in the quest for self-acknowledgment and affection.
