The Red Shoes [Edinburgh Festival Fringe]

The Red Shoes [Edinburgh Festival Fringe]


Based on Hans Christian Andersen's tale of an orphan's rise from rags to riches, the 'superbly talented' (List) Young Pleasance bring the glitz, glamour and seedy underworld of turn-of-the-century Berlin to life with music, dance, movement and of course characteristic high production values.

'Sheer professionalism and talent' (EdinburghGuide.com).

Follow our heroine's journey from the steps of a convent through Berlin's wartime back streets, the hedonism of its dance halls and finally as an actress on the silver screen as Germany teeters on the brink of disaster.

'Always one of the hottest tickets at the Fringe' (The730Review.co.uk).
