Timeless Tales: A Hans Christian Andersen Quartet weaves together four of Hans Christian Andersen's best-known stories in an exciting and flexible format. Narrated by Andersen himself, the play introduces us to the master storyteller from Denmark, providing background information on his childhood and the circumstances leading to the publication of his plays. After the "Prologue," the actual dramatization of the tales begins. They include: "The Princess and the Pea," "The Little Mermaid," "The Emperor's New Clothes," and "The Ugly Duckling." This last tale also serves to shed light on Andersen himself and his transformation from a poor, lonely "ugly duckling" living in the small village of Odense to the celebrated writer of Copenhagen. The stories are presented in a delightful manner with flexible casting and simple costumes and staging.
