Scruffy Mutt Theatre The Red Shoes



Physical theatre and contemporary dance collide in this all-female youth theatre production that begs the question: what would you do for fame? When a poor young girl is offered a pair of magical red shoes, it seems all her dreams will come true. But ambition comes at a terrible cost. And soon Karen discovers, to her dismay, that she can never stop dancing. At turns horrific, comic and tragic, Scruffy Mutt Theatre present a biting cautionary tale for our time in this freely adapted interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved, yet mean-spirited, fairy tale.

This show was part of our 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
