‘A fantastical world that has all the fresh, unusual and sinister appeal of wandering into a fairy-tale for the first time.’
✭✭✭✭ Scotsman

Growing up isn’t easy, especially when you’re in love with a bear.

This is a story about a girl who dares to follow her longing. The youngest daughter of a king, she feels like a misfit. Then one night a compelling dream leads her deep into the forest, where a chance encounter sets her on a fateful path she could never have anticipated.

Following a critically acclaimed, sell-out success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011, The Wrong Crowd bring you this captivating, dark fairy-tale, which shares its roots with Beauty and the Beast. Stunning puppetry, enchanting music and deft humour combine to dazzling effect in this coming-of-age tale to enthral audiences young and old.

Fall in with The Wrong Crowd for their inventive, playful, unique brand of storytelling theatre.

Suitable for ages 8+.

After Saturday’s performance there will be a chance to meet the company and puppets in the production. This show will be BSL interpreted.

  1. Four of us came to see The Girl with the Iron Claws this week and we all absolutely loved it! So good and so funny too - a really entertaining evening with a great pre-theatre supper in the bar. Please put me on your mailing list for future Wrong Crowd performances. Well done to all involved.
