PUPPETRY, enchanting music and humour bring a thrilling Nordic fairy tale to life in The Girl With The Iron Claws.
An inventive take on a Nordic myth known as The White Bear King, it shares its roots with Beauty And The Beast, but is packed full of mysterious twists.
At its heart is the king’s daughter, who has always felt like a misfit.
One fateful night she decides to defy her family and instead follow her interests and is led into the forest by a compelling dream.
A chance encounter with a white bear sets her off on a path full of surprises she could never have anticipated.
The Girl With The Iron Claws debuted at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival to rave reviews.
It is appearing at the egg theatre, Bath, from June 29-30.
