It s hard being a girl! Especially in a fairy-tale land where everyone expects you to be a damsel in distress. Well, these four young ladies are just not having it!

Our story opens with Isadora, who doesn t like seeming helpless after being abandoned in the forest by her father. She much prefers feeling strong and self-sufficient, especially once she pulls an ancient sword from a stone! Isadora soon meets Beatrice, a lady-in-waiting, who honestly finds life in the castle quite boring. Winifred joins the spirited pair next, having always lived alone in the forest, concocting potions and practicing spells. The trio is joined by the notorious Masked Maven, a young woman with many secrets.

Seeking excitement, the foursome journey on a comical adventure through a fairy-tale land of magic and monsters, royal fanfare and fairies, as they prove they can ably find their own way through the world, strong and independent. Along the way, they encounter angry villagers, arrogant princes, mischievous fairies, and even a dragon or two!

Loads of tongue-in-cheek humor adds spirit to this fast-paced comedy with four female leads and a simple single set.
