THE LITTLE MATCHGIRL (AND OTHER HAPPIER TALES)
Emma Rice's 'exquisite' (Daily Telegraph) production comes to Oxford Playhouse following its critically acclaimed premiere at Shakespeare's Globe.

As our destitute heroine struggles to survive, she strikes her matches to keep warm. Each match will conjure a new story, a new vision, and we will hold her hand as we tumble down the rabbit hole together.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's beautiful tales, The Little Match Girl, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor's New Clothes and Thumbelina reveal a spellbinding world of magic and mystery.

Steeped in the metaphor and meaning that runs through the veins of Andersen's enduring stories, this will be the 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.
