The Tinder Box
This is Hans Christian Andersen's well-known story, The Tinder Box, about the soldier, the witch, the princess and half the kingdom.
The two actors and one musician tell this story using puppets, music and acting, around a large suitcase, which is also the only set decoration. The suitcase changes constantly and becomes a tree, an inn, an attic room and many other places. The actors go in and out of their rolls, drawing parallels between the theme of 'The Tinder Box' and the reality we live in today.
