An orphan girl, adopted by a wealthy family, is given a pair of beautiful red shoes. At first it appears her dreams have come true… but appearances can be very deceptive.

Nancy Harris's play The Red Shoes is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's extraordinary fairytale of dance, desire and destruction. It premiered at the Gate Theatre, Dublin, in 2017.
