Synopsis


In a townhouse in Copenhagen works Hans Christian Andersen, a teller of exquisite and fantastic children's tales beloved by millions.


But the true source of his stories dwells in his attic upstairs, her existence a dark secret kept from the outside world.


As dangerous, twisted and funny as his National Theatre and Broadway hit The Pillowman, Martin McDonagh's new play travels deep into the abysses of the imagination.
