Originally published by Hans Christian Anderson in 1843 the story of the Ugly Duckling is considered to be the work of the Danish author known for collecting and writing folk and fairy stories. It is a universal coming of age story which tells of how an odd looking duckling is teased and bullied for looking different but eventually emerges as a swan. In this Travelling Light production originally directed by Sally Cookson the story features the theatre company’s trademark joyful and moving style of storytelling, with live music from Benji Bower. The director for this production is Craig Edwards.
