Snow White Creative Writing Assignment

Jack Todhunter | Friday August 07, 2009


You have all heard of the famous fairy tale of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs.

Fairy tales often end with the cliché “and they all lived happily ever after.? The play below starts to suggest that this is not always the case.
