More about Journey to the World Under Ground

At the website of The National Theatre, the following is written about Journey to the World Under Ground:

"For his tenth birthday, Nils gets the present of his dreams from his parents. He is thrilled, but when his parents insist that his little sister should be allowed to borrow the gift, Nils gets annoyed and escapes to his room in anger. There, something incredible happens; all of a sudden Nils starts falling, and he keeps falling and falling and falling. When he finally lands, he has come to a new world. Here, people talk in another tongue, they behave differently, and they have very different rules from those Nils knows from our world.

Nils embarks on an exciting journey, during which he meets many strange characters. Underway, he frequently meets new challenges - testing his creative abilities, but also reminding him of his ordinary life at home. Perhaps the unknown is not so foreign after all?"
