The Little Match Girl

The Last Baguette Theatre Company: The Little Match Girl

A family show for Christmas inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s traditional tale.

London. Christmas Eve. The snow is falling. A little girl struggles fiercely through the cold. We follow her throughout the day as she encounters the funny and zany characters of the vibrant city streets.

In an attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third. In the cold the flames blaze to life and the flickering fire illuminates her fantastic Christmas visions. With each strike we enter the tumultuous world of her imagination, meeting talking turkeys, dancing rats, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their chattering Christmas tree.

Having delighted audiences in 2017 The Last Baguette return with this touching, madcap and heart-warming Christmas show. The company use their signature style of visual storytelling, live music and puppetry to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale. Written by T. A. Woodsmith, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award.
The Last Baguette are company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham. We make fast-paced, irreverent physical comedy, and believe in the power of physical comedy and silliness to talk about important issues of our times. The theatre we make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric. We have performed in the UK, France, Switzerland and Canada.

Time & Again Theatre Company: Greyhounds

The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are underway…

Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare's famous story of ‘warlike Harry’ with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during the Second World War. Set in their local village hall, whilst the war rages above them the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for their local Spitfire fund. You’ll find them rehearsing, gossiping and indulging in some seriously bad acting as the night of the performance draws ever closer.
This piece of new writing was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival 2018, and combines Shakespeare, with a touch of comedy and some truly vintage flair.
