Monday 5th – Friday 23rd December 2016
Based on the original fairy-tale by Hans Christian Andersen, this is a much loved seasonal story for the whole family.
Gerda and Kay live in a watery town in a watery world. Some time ago, there occurred on Earth a seismic event known as ‘The Melting,’ and since then there has not been a single flake of snow nor a single cube of ice. As such, Christmas has been cancelled. Forever.
This new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale re-imagines this timeless story for the modern world. A fiercely funny and highly energetic production, it utilises puppetry and song to bring this sprawling adventure bursting to life. It also illuminates the very modern relevance of Andersen’s quintessential story of good vs. evil, and man’s relationship with the natural world.
