The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales features the perennial favourites compiled by Hans Christian Andersen and promises a night full of revealing truths and magical delights
Inspired by the beautiful and devastatingly sad Hans Christian Andersen ‘wonder’ tale, The Little Matchgirl, and combining Andersen’s other tales, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Thumbelina, The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales will reveal a world of magic and mystery.
Steeped in the metaphor and meaning that runs through the veins of Andersen’s enduring stories, this will be a night to delight, transport and surprise.
For adults and brave children alike, expect music, puppetry, dark magic...and perhaps some modern truths that we would all rather remain hidden.
