About This Show

As the Little Matchgirl struggles to survive, she strikes her precious matches to keep warm. Each match conjures a new story, and we hold her hand as she tumbles down this rabbit hole of folk tales. Inspired by the beautiful and poignant Hans Christian Andersen tale, and interweaving it with The Princess and the Pea and The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Little Matchgirl and Happier Tales reveals a spellbinding world of magic and mystery. Steeped in the metaphor and meaning that run through Andersen’s enduring stories, this will be an event to delight, transport, move and surprise. For adults and brave children alike, expect music, puppetry, dark magic… and perhaps some modern truths that we all might rather remain hidden.
