TINY – Thumbelina Retold


  • 21 - 22 Jun // 7:30pm
  • Main Space
  • €15 & €10 concession

A NEW work-in-progress musical.

Based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen story, this musical tale of Thumbelina, ‘Tiny’ tells the story of a special young person struggling with being different.

When ‘Tiny’ is whisked away from both her home and her mother, she finds herself in a decaying city, where she is used for her glow.  Kept in the hive by Madame Bee with the other girls, Tiny resists the clutching urges of the powerful Mole, all the while fighting for what is right, and the liberation of the city and its inhabitants.

This inspiring story of love, family and a young person’s struggle for self-identity is set against the backdrop of a modern landscape, where conflict between nature, human greed and political ambition rages.
