Robyn Grant – Writer of the book and lyrics and director said:

“We are beyond thrilled to be making our return this summer, having spent the last two years improving the design, expanding the show to its fast and electric two acts, finding our hugely talented new cast and imagining what we we know this show has the potential to be in. “Unfortunate” is brimming with the passion and perseverance of a magnificent team of individuals fully committed to our vision of pure silliness, eccentricity and joy. Ursula’s lair is finally ready to welcome you back and full of surprises, we just need our last ingredient…you!”

When Disney released “The Little Mermaid” in 1989, they had no idea they were creating an icon. Ursula the Sea Witch has quickly taken her place as Queen of Disney Villains: a pop culture legend and badass feminist. She is noisy. She is intelligent. She’s a ruthless businesswoman, and oh boy. is she sexy. Sexy and shamelessly oily. She’s not defined by slipper-sized feet, enchanted blonde hair, or snow-white skin. Ursula is plump, purple and proud. For the LGBTQ+ community stands Ursula, defiant against her maker and with a message for all of us ‘poor unhappy souls’: love the skin you are in, value your voice over your body and don’t be afraid to be kinda naughty” Who better to take us on a searing journey through the problematic minefield that is Disney?

Unfortunate is produced by Wildpark Entertainment and Fat Rascal Theatre. The London Premiere is produced in association with Underbelly. It will be directed by Robyn Grant under the musical direction of Arlene McNaught. Choreography is by Melody Sinclair, set design by Abby Clarke, costume design by Cory Shipp, sound design by Dominic Cusack and Joe Cusack, and puppet design by Abby Clarke and Hugh Purves, with additional casting by Pearson Cast.

Cruella said her side, and Maleficent had her moment. Now, the legendary queer queen is ready to spread out, in this revealing tale of sex, witchcraft, and cupping.
