Waterside Arts Centre present The Egg and Horse+Bamboo’s production of Tove Jansson’s Moominland Midwinter.
The Egg and Horse+Bamboo have created a show that will sweep you off to one of the most magical places you could ever dream of… with some of children’s literature’s most captivating and curious creatures.
Waking early from his winter hibernation, Moomintroll sets off to explore a snowy Moominland, but the places which he knows so well in summer have all changed. He finds Too-Ticky and her invisible shrews living in his summer bathing house and Little My is wearing Moominmamma’s tray and tea-cosy! Following a run-in with the Lady of the Cold and a certain forgetful Squirrel, Moomintroll is forced to make some very grown-up decisions… Heart-warming, humorous and spellbinding, this is a wondrous Christmas fantasy for all the family to enjoy together.
