This Cinderella is not about princes and princesses. It’s about a single woman in her early 40s trying to go on a date, and a single guy who has an unreasonable fear of not being heard over loud music in bars. There may not be any ugly sisters, but there’s the occasional mysterious animal. There’s midnight. There’s a shoe. There’s dancing. And there’s beautiful transformation.

"Whittet... playfully weaves elements of the Cinderella story and its many variants (the lost shoe, the figure of the lost mother, the transforming animal) into a bittersweet study of loneliness. You don't see any ugly sisters, but that doesn't mean they are not there." - Sydney Morning Herald
