presented by tutti frutti productions and York Theatre Royal

Woodland trees transform from dark weathered branches, to silver sticks of frost, while hidden in brushwood, beside an ice-covered lake, a lost rejected duckling stares skyward at the migrating swans, yearning to belong and marvelling at their beauty…

Moving through all 4 seasons, tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal bring to life Hans Christian Andersen’s well known tale.

With a menagerie of mean farmyard animals, depicted through inventive physicality, and with live music that quacks and trills, this charming production plays with ideas of identity, a sense of belonging and the journey to discover inner beauty.

Recommended for ages 3+
