    Jonas, a handsome young soldier discovers treasure beyond his wildest dreams when he finds a tinderbox which gives him power beyond other mortals. Jonas’ adventures explore friendship, betrayal and the importance of ‘staying true ‘to ones values.

    The Tinderbox is an epic journey tale, from rags to riches, though war, political intrigue, the depths of despair to the heights of love and passion. It is a classic everyman tale inspired by the Hans Andersen story but not a copy of it. This version of the tale reflects Andersen’s own life as he searched for fame and fortune. Exciting and touching, the story includes a fantastical range of characters- a witch, a king, a beautiful opera singer and a dog with eyes as big as saucers.
