Director: Emma Rice; Written by: Hans Christian Andersen, Joel Horwood
Inspired by the beautiful stories of Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Match Girl reveals a world of magic and mystery that will delight you, surprise you... and send you tumbling down a rabbit hole.
As the little girl struggles to survive in the cold and dark she lights a match to keep warm, and each strike conjures up a new story with wonderful music, puppetry... and perhaps some modern truths that we would all rather remain hidden.
Got a question? – Talk about Little Matchgirl
