About the Show Less...

An uplifting version of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale featuring music, puppetry and a great story. Read More >

In the depths of the nordic winter, a little girl lights a match for warmth, illuminating a captivating vision. Peering past the match’s glow, she glimpses a snug room with a crackling fire and a table groaning with food. Stretching out her arms it seems almost within her grasp… Suitable for ages 7+.

The first of three productions from Gruppe 38, the award winning Danish theatre company.
