SOUTH Perth resident Vee McGuire’s fairytale dream has come true after she was cast for three roles in Fairytale of Sorts.

Written and directed by Rivervale resident John Grimshaw, Fairytale of Sorts is an adult friendly play inspired by the films A Knight’s Tale and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Despite being cast to play various roles McGuire describes herself as a late starter to the world of acting.

She has appeared in several student and educational films and has taken to the stage in the moved reading Perchance to Dream at Murdoch University’s Studio 411 and 100 Lunches at Garrick Theatre.

Fairytale of Sorts appealed because the storyline, it’s just so funny,” McGuire said.

“Most people play more than one part, adding to the fun, and there is a great level of creative freedom for the actors.

“Archibald is the main character I play and he is somewhat above the state of peasant, in that he can read and is the manservant to the young and flighty Prince Ryland, who he tries to keep in order.

“The main challenge for me is developing a sort of peasant London accent, which isn’t easy with my natural Irish lilt.”

Fairytale of Sorts plays at 8pm June 28, 29, 30, July 4, 5, 6 and 7 with a 2pm matinee July 1.

Tickets are $21 and $18 concession.
