His parents are violent, selfish and unsympathetic, it seems like Sashka’s life is spiralling out of control until one profound evening he sees ‘The Little Angel’ hanging on the Christmas tree and his life is inexplicably changed forever. It is moving, funny and full of heart. Music, lyrics and adaptation by Paul Dale-Vickers.

After the success of ‘De Profundis’ Actual Size continue to create new, innovative musical theatre work of an intimate nature. We have turned our attentions to a musical re-telling of Leonid Andreyev’s short story ‘The Little Angel’ Set in Russia at the turn of the 20th Century.
