But beyond the gates astonishment awaits, as down the sugary corridors and amongst the incredible and edible delights, the five lucky winners discover not everything is as sweet as it seems.

Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre Director Colin Marr says: “we’re especially proud to showcase this piece by award-winning playwright David Grieg, who has written the book.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have this devilish and delicious musical with us for just over three weeks next Spring.
