TINDERBOX – ‘A captivating twist on an original tale’
Play by Jacqueline Avery – Music by Joe Butcher – Animation: Tom Hughes.
A war-torn soldier and an obstinate princess – aided by three unearthly dogs, a strange, wizened woman and a magic tinderbox – discover the unbreakable bonds of true love.
AsOne Theatre Company presents its talented AsCend ensemble in a new play giving Hans Christian Andersen’s wonderfully dark tale an illuminating, Jurassic Coast twist. From deep under the roots of a magical tree, to a locked room in a royal tower; a story with huge heart and soul dusted with humour.
An audio-visual treat to thrill all the family, ‘tinderbox’ is a feast of physical storytelling, puppetry, shadow-play, animated image, lyrical music and song – creating a spell-binding experience whatever your age.
