Tröll (Wellington, New Zealand)


31 May 2019 - 31 Dec 2021

Short Synopsis


Written by Ralph McCubbin Howell
Designed by Hannah Smith   Directed by Charlotte Bradley

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 living in the wall...

From Trick of the Light Theatre 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. For adults and children 12+
