Andersen’s Fairytales: The Adventures of Hans Christian Andersen. Adapted by John Morton. Presented by arrangement with Youth Theatre Ireland and Playshare.
Hans Christian Andersen is an awkward young boy who works as a Sorcerer’s apprentice for the Danish court. But all he wants is to be a famous writer. When the wicked Snow Queen returns to threaten the kingdom with permanent frost, the Emperor assembles a crack team of heroes led by the famed adventurer Emile Pussenbootz to capture her. However, Hans begins to suspect that Pussenbootz isn’t quite the hero he’s made out to be. Soon the young scribe is forced to take up the mantle of unlikely hero in this exciting, fairy-tale adventure.

New York. 1932. The Prohibition is in full swing. A private investigator, a missing sister, and an ambitious undercover reporter all converge on a seedy burlesque house on 42nd street, run by the aggressive Leon Antonelli and the mysterious Madame LaBouche… A story of intrigue and espionage, glamour and tears, longing and laughter, Kohl takes us on a journey through the smoky, bourbon-soaked streets of 1930s New York, where cover-ups are commonplace, and mystery lurks at every street corner.
