Our GCSE drama pupils headed to London and the famous Globe Theatre last Friday to see The Little Matchgirl and Other Happier Tales. Inspired by the beautiful and devastatingly sad Hans Christian Andersen ‘wonder’ tale, The Little Matchgirl, and combining Andersen’s other tales, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Thumbelina, this production revealed a spellbinding world of magic and mystery. There was music, puppetry, dark magic… and perhaps some modern truths that we would all rather remained hidden. It was also very Christmassy and a lovely start to December!
