Testing, testing, come in, Mr. Andersen!
Two strange figures in trench coats and hats take over the streets of Odense, armed with suitcases, a pipe, a magnifying glass, and a disguising newspaper. These clown detectives have found the path that leads to H.C. Andersen himself and they are dead set to meet him! Following his footsteps around town, they will use every machine and gadget they have available and will leave no stone unturned until they find the writer! Everybody will be interrogated and consulted in this very important investigation, be it audience member or character from Andersen’s fairy tales.
You are invited on a mysterious search, a quest for a beloved lost author – complete with song, dance, slapstick and a jolly good time. Will Andersen be found?
