The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales
Fantasic For Families

Emma Rice's "exquisite" (Daily Telegraph) production comes to Bristol this Christmas following its critically acclaimed premiere at Shakespeare's Globe.

Struggling to keep warm on the freezing winter streets, our impoverished heroine begins to strike her dwindling stock of matches. Each match she strikes conjures a new story, and while it burns she escapes into an enchanting world of magic and mystery. Inspired by the beautiful Hans Christian Andersen tales, we follow her through the spell-binding stories of The Princess and the PeaThe Emperor's New Clothes and Thumbelina.

For adults and brave children alike this will be a truly remarkable theatre experience, full of music, laughter, puppetry and magic which asks us to consider the true meaning of Christmas spirit.
