A version of the Cinderella story told from the viewpoint of the ugly sisters, each taking an alternate chapter, which owes as much to pantomime as it does to the traditional tale. The sisters, Lardine and Angula, mock Cinderella mercilessly and they get the last word even though Cinders (aka Miss Terry Stranger) gets her prince.
