The play continues until 12 January so there is still time to see it. Book your tickets here.
Susannah Clapp of the Observer has reviewed the play:
Tom Rogers’s design is a cut-out snowscape that is as unadorned as a piece of classic Finnish furniture. Characters ski and caper over it in miniature; at other times they appear, supported by puppeteers, at the front of the stage, when they are the size of giant toddlers. The story itself – wrapped in the eerie calm of an iced-up world into which Moomintroll wakes from hibernation – is mostly amiable, always quirky, sometimes chilling.
It is the Egg, the cosiest theatre in England – which welcomes its audience of children with primary colours, squashy seats and a snug oval auditorium – that has squeaked in with the first UK staging of these singular stories. Here are their wide-eyed musings, their strange, drifting adventures and their large undulating landscapes. Hattie Naylor has finely adapted Moominland Midwinter for the puppet group Horse + Bamboo.
