Let’s hear the heartwhelming tale of the The Little Matchgirl at Shakespeare’s Globe.


This event is suitable for: All ages

This event costs: Please check the site

As our destitute heroine struggles to survive, she strikes her matches to keep warm. Each match will conjure a new story, a new vision, and we will hold her hand as we tumble down the rabbit hole together.

Inspired by the beautiful and devastatingly sad Hans Christian Andersen tale, The Little Match Girl, and combining Andersen’s other tales, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Thumbelina, The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales reveal a spellbinding world of magic and mystery. Steeped in the metaphor and meaning that runs through the veins of Andersen’s enduring stories, this will be a night of delight, transport, and surprise.

For adults and brave children alike, expect music, puppetry, dark magic… and perhaps some modern truths that we would all rather remain hidden.

After a triumphant run in 2016, The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales will once again have you crying with laughter and laughing through tears.
