Capital E

It’s 1998. Otto is twelve but online he’s thirteen and he’s pretty sure he gets away with it. He lives in an old wooden two-story house with his mum, dad, and sister, a chain-smoking Icelandic granny, and an ancient malevolent tröll that’s started living in the wall…

From Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder) comes a lo-fi wi-fi fable in the vein of Stranger Things. It combines storytelling, music, and puppetry into an uncanny tale from the twitchy edges of the digital age.

“Layers, skill and great storytelling with a meaning. Tröll is a complex, funny, moving and dark tale peppered with 1990s references. The script is a delight. It deals with a child’s depression and guilt, using the troll as a way of manifesting unhappiness, which keeps it in line with the darkness that fairy tales have.” – Theatreview, Wellington

Suits ages 7+

Tröll is a part of the Capital E National Arts Festival.
