Sofia loves witch stories. Her favourite is the one about her Nonna meeting the Befana, an old lady who brings sweets to well-behaved children while they sleep… and who carries away the unwary ones who stumble upon her in the middle of the night! The day Nonna disappears, her granddaughter is convinced the Befana has kidnapped her. Sofia sets off to find her and becomes immersed in a story that goes beyond anything she could ever have imagined.

In this show inspired by the legends of northern Italy, Anaïs Pellin’s writing takes young audiences on an adventure full of twists and turns. Between the rapture and turmoil of childhood, La Befana conveys a poetic story about the final journey of our loved ones.

Part of the Fringe Theatre Festival
