The Invisibility Hat
December 12, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm£3.50 – £12.00
Sweden, Christmas Eve 1850: young siblings Maria & Gustav slave away on their uncle’s farm in the winter forest. For them there is no Christmas. But out of the trees steps a figure: a girl with bare feet and only a thin dress to keep out the cold. For Gustav and Maria, nothing may ever be the same again…
In this warm, funny, atmospheric and thrilling performance, internationally acclaimed storyteller Dominic Kelly takes you into the magical world of the Nordic forests and their unpredictable inhabitants… the trolls! There, beauty and danger sit side by side – but a moment’s kindness to a stranger can make all the difference…
