A paper heart is caught in the wind. It flutters from the fingers of a little girl who had been practicing writing her name on it: MathildaMathilda.

The heart lifts and the breeze blows it into the air. 

On the hill, overlooking the sea, Nelly works in her artist’s studio.

Their childhood doll sits in a bag, forgotten. But in the bag is not one dolls head…but two. The heart blows through the window and gently lands on the dolls breast. MathildaMathilda opens her eyes, rolls them around and starts… she is alive! But what is she?


This is an adventure story.


The story of MathildaMathilda.


Created and performed by Mother-Daughter duo, Tomasin and Ros Cuthbert in Soap Soup’s first show for older audiences, and boasting jazz compositions by celebrated composer Ashley John Long, this is a highly original piece of work, not to be missed.


“Spellbinding. This is not your average children’s play with bright colours and strident tones. It is lovely and gentle and even a bit haunting.”

Bristol Culture (on 'The Snow Baby)

“Tender and enchanting... featuring a host of loveable characters.”
