A True Tall Tale

As part of Dublin Theatre Festival Family Season, A True Tall Tale will take place in Smock Alley Theatre from 10th-13th October.
Very freely adapted from Selma Lagerl√∂fs The Legend of the Christmas Rose, A True Tall Tale is a bedtime story from one of Denmark’s most highly regarded children’s theatre companies. 
It is a story about the Goinge forest which is transofrmed every Christmas night into a blossoming summer garden. Or at least that is what the old robber-wife tells the Abbot Hans.
On an icy winter’s day he and his apprentice Johannes set off deep into the trees to witness this great miracle. But as they continue on their journey the comrades discover that the Goinge forest is not just a place of beauty. It is filled with fairy tales, robbers and thieves, lying-in-wait for unwelcome guests...
Audiences will be seated in specially-designed hammocks for the duration of the performance, which sounds very cool.
Recommended for ages 8+
