Galway Actors Workshop’s irreverent update of this Christmas classic is a seasonal reminder that fairytales are not just for children.

Lately Gerda's boyfriend Kai has been more interested in his new Job-Bridge role, and possibly in his new boss, than he has been in her and she has been left at home, stalking him on Facebook. Fuelled by this peculiarly modern form of anxiety, she searches for him at the launch of the new social media engineering product he has been working on, only to meet a colourful cast of characters along the way and have her mind opened in ways she hadn't expected.

Devised and performed by Deana McGuire, Ronan Cassidy, Leticia Diaz, Aisling Courtney, Brian May, Megan Vine and Vera Kilgallon.
