The Little Match Girl

posted 25 Oct 2017, 09:59 by Bristol Old Vic Theatre Club

Emma Rice's production comes to Bristol this Christmas following its critically acclaimed premiere at Shakespeare's Globe.

Struggling to keep warm the little matchgirl begins to strike her dwindling stock of matches. Each strike conjures a new story, and while the flame burns she escapes into a world of magic and mystery.  Inspired by the beautiful Hans Christian Andersen tales, we follow her through a series of spell-binding stories.

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.

The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales is at Bristol Old Vic 30 November - 14 January.
