The Spindle and Other Lesbian Fairy Tales, which revamped Sleeping Beauty into a lesbian play about incest. The "curse of sleep" is intended to be a metaphor for dissociation and trauma reactions, and the "curse" spreads to younger generations as it incapacitates the older ones.

That's an original way to interpret the tale! I like it.

Incest is not just the evil done by one person; it's the refusal to act by everyone around the perpetrator, or the collusion.

I cannot imagine how terrifying and isolating that must be, that the people who are supposed to watch out for the child are on the side of his abusers. I also can't imagine being an adult covering for a rapist. I'd like to believe that would never be me, that I'd be the hero and step up, but I don't know that.
