Written by: Anna Wheatley

A new play, written by Anna Wheatley based on the original story by Hans Christian Andersen.

We find ourselves in a country called Denmark, in a city called Odense in a time unspecified. It is mid-winter. A dusting of frost clutches at window panes, the crisp air nips at your nose. The city is beautiful and busy. Houses are huddled so close together that their rooftops kiss. And it is here, in the embrace of two touching rooftops, that we find our heroes.

Gerda and Kai are inseparable, pals since birth, nothing can tear them apart. Until one winter’s day, Kai mysteriously disappears and Gerda is forced to set out on a treacherous journey across Scandinavia to find him.

Join Gerda as she sails the seas, breaks into palaces and wrestles her way out of forests to find Kai. Oh and you might learn to speak some crow along the way!
