Knowledge and a Girl by Howard Barker

Howard Barker twists Grimm's Little Snow White into a spiky fable. 'I sleep with seven men,' she says.

There are no innocent maidens or wicked stepmothers here, only women seeking enlightenment through erotic transgression. Barker delves into the intricacies of sexual maturity, explodes contemporary

obsessions with youthfulness, and exposes how women are punished for a visible sexuality.

But there's no social realism here - this is a truly Grimm world of mirrors, where the Queen's punishment is taken to the fairy tale extreme, where the cost of desire and its knowledge is paid in blood.
