about this event

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!
