The Snow Queen Edinburgh Fringe
The Snow Queen Edinburgh Fringe

Greta’s brother, Kay, has been acting strange. He’s mean and moody and won’t play games. The Snow Queen must have snatched him and left an imposter in his place. With her new friend, the wise-cracking, fame-hungry talking Crow to guide her, Greta must set out across the snow to search for her brother in the Snow Queen’s palace and bring him home in time for Christmas. Funny, magic and full of surprises, this new modern adaptation of The Snow Queen is a perfect family adventure.

“Hennessy artfully sows seeds at the play’s outset that have blossomed beautifully” ★★★★ The Stage for Tatty Hennessy’s A Hundred Words for Snow

Tatty Hennessy has attended young writers’ programmes at the Royal Court, Lyric and Gate Theatres. Her most recent play A Hundred Words for Snow, a new one woman play about being an explorer in a changing world, the pick of a triple-bill of monologues presented by Heretic Productions at the Arcola Theatre and then went on to be a big hit at the Vaults Festival.

Director Scott Ellis comments, “All the best kids stories have brilliant, quirky sidekicks and the wise cracking, bird pun loving Crow will not disappoint. An ironing board becomes an airplane, an old rake and a bucket turn on a Polar Bear and a little girls makes the journey of a lifetime to save her brother all powered by the force of imagination. The Snow Queen is a story of family bond and sacrifice with depth and beauty to engage with people of all ages. Be prepared to giggle one moment and sob the next!”
