The Red Shoes
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen's tale, the 'superbly talented' (List) Young Pleasance bring the glitz, glamour, and seedy underworld of interwar Berlin to life with characteristic high production values, 'sheer professionalism and talent' (EdinburghGuide.com). Follow Lotta as her Red Shoes lead her on a rags-to-riches journey from the steps of the orphanage through the hedonism of its dance halls, and finally as an actress on the silver screen as Germany teeters on the brink of disaster. Vivaciously light with disturbingly dark undertones. 'Always one of the hottest tickets at the Fringe' (The730Review.co.uk).
