This year’s family Christmas show at the Pleasance theatre is Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales.

Fresh from their five star successes with Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories in both London and Edinburgh, Red Table Theatre’s storytellers bring you a delightful collection of the fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen.

Known to generations in his native Denmark and across the world as the most magical of storytellers, some of Andersen’s best loved stories are brought to life by the cast using nothing but their own creativity and an assortment of odds and ends they found lying around in a corner of their old upstairs attic.

Complete with Danish children’s songs, this production aims to engage everyone in the joys of Andersen’s exceptional stories, encouraging creative play and exploration afterwards in both children and adults alike.

Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales is suitable for children aged 4+ and adults of all ages.
