Once upon a stormy night, while the wind and the rain were howling outside, the Royals were all tucked up warm in bed. Suddenly there came a knock at the door and a very wet, very untidy girl was brought inside…

Become part of this playful and comic story of a prince in search of a ‘real’ princess, a clever queen, a girl who is not as she first appears, a tower of mattresses and of course a tiny pea. This quirky and inventive adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s bedtime tale is played out among sheets and blankets with puppets, objects and dreamlike projections.
