After a successful tour in India, The Snow Queen comes to Canada Water Culture Space, London, SE16 & Trestle Arts Base, St Albans, AL4 0JQ
Adapted From Hans Christian Andersen’s Magical Tale
This unique adaptation brings together an old European story, with Indian mythology and exotic locations – resulting in a performance rich in colour, music and unforgettable imagery.
After a freak snowstorm on the southern tip of India, Kumar disappears. Gowri, his best friend, discovers that he has been captured by the formidable Snow Queen, and embarks on a journey across the length and breadth of the continent to save him.
From the burning heat of southern India, through lush backwaters, glitzy Bollywood and desolate bandit country, our brave heroine strives to bring the warmth of friendship to the icy north.
Will Kumar be trapped forever in the deathly cold of everlasting winter? Or can his closest friend find a way of melting the Snow Queen’s frozen heart?
“(the) production is acted with flair and humour and can hold an audience… rapt from start to finish”
