Based on the 2001 DreamWorks film Shrek and William Steig’s 1990 book Shrek!, Shrek: The Musical is set in a mythical ‘once upon a time’ sort of land, where a hulking green ogre lives in an ugly green swamp. When his life is disrupted by a gang of homeless fairytale characters in pursuit of getting their own homes back, he reluctantly agrees to help. In the process he meets, and rescues, Princess Fiona, who he likes … a lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?
