“Mischief isn’t something you think up, it just happens” – Astrid Lindgren
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 Midlands 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?
“PIPPI LONGSTOCKING WAS MY GIRL. I LOVED HER STRENGTH – NOT JUST HER PHYSICAL POWER, BUT THE IDEA THAT SHE WOULDN’T ALLOW HER VOICE TO BE DIMINISHED BY ANYONE.” MICHELE OBAMA
Celebrating nearly 75 years since Astrid Lindgren first conceived Pippi Longstocking as “the strongest girl in the world”, this spectacular world premiere of one of our best loved children’s books will burst onto stage in an epic musical Christmas adventure created especially for Christmas audiences. Composed by Stu Barker, whose West End and Broadway credits with Kneehigh Theatre Company include Brief Encounter and The Red Shoes, this energetic and joyful production will be directed by Jesse Jones (Second Star To The Right, Education, Education, Education) and Helena Middleton (The Star Seekers, Education, Education, Education).
