Bristol Old Vic Theatre School presents this thrilling adaptation by Theresa Heskins of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale, as young Gerda guides us on her quest to save her best friend Kai from the clutches of the wicked Snow Queen.
In a small Danish village where children are encouraged to ‘forget fancy and fix on facts’, Gerda is convinced that her playmate is not lost forever and embarks on a bold mission through the seasons to rescue him – meeting on her way a chatty crow, a clever Princess and a motley band of robbers and their talkative menagerie of pets.
As she journeys across icy plains and dark forests, through the garden of forgetting, can Gerda save Kai from eternal winter and help him ‘find the words’ in order to turn back time?
A story of friendship, hope and hot chocolate, join Gerda on her adventure as she battles brigands, fends off enchanted flowers and confronts a Snowflake Chorus.
