Meet Astrid Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking
Storytelling performance by Sofie Miller
Nine-year-old Pippi is strong, brave and fearless. When she comes to live in her new home with her monkey and horse but with no parents and no rules, she brings mischief, chaos and confusion to the folk of this ordinary and traditional town. Pippi takes charge of her own crazy adventures, with her two new friends, Tommy and Annika. What else would you expect from
the daughter of a swashbuckling pirate captain?
This playful and quirky solo storytelling performance, with audience participation, introduces children to Astrid Lindgren’s much-loved Pippi Longstocking, ‘the strongest girl in the world’. Created for you by Olivier award-winning director Helena Middleton, with original music by Brook Tate and adapted for stage by acclaimed storyteller Danyah Miller. Find out why the self-sufficient, quick-witted, and generous Pippi has inspired fans the world over, including Lauren Child, Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, and Cerys Matthews, to name just a few!
The performance is followed by an optional Pippi-inspired craft activity (15 minutes).
