Sometimes the smallest hearts are the warmest.
When an epic snowfall imprisons the residents of the tiny village of Kishka, young Thea Sutton proposes the villagers build a catapult to fling her and the village’s bravest and strongest out in search of a solution. With the catapult hastily assembled, Thea and the heroes are launched over the snow and into the grandest of adventures. Whimsical and humorous, dark, and mysterious, heartfelt, and sincere, this play weaves a fantastical Grimmsian tale for the entire family.
The work features an eclectic mix of storytelling, traditional Czech puppetry, shadow puppetry and animation, with a cast of memorable characters.
"The Snow [...] not only treats children with respect, but also listens to their desires for change and gives them a narrative with the space to affect that change."
""... cheek-achingly hilarious ... unforgettable magic.""
""... Inspiring tale of adventure and innovation...""
"Finegan Kruckemeyer's play has the whimsy and delight in the bizarre that marks a great children's story, and Barking Gecko Theatre have brought it to life beautifully."
