The Snow

Presented by Barking Gecko Theatre

When an epic snowfall imprisons the residents of the tiny village of Kishka, young Theodora Sutton proposes the villagers build a catapult to fling her and six of the village’s bravest and strongest out in search of a solution.

The catapult hastily assembled, Theodora 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.

Barking Gecko has a global reputation for crafting exquisite theatre of ambition, sophistication and scale. The stories we tell on stage fuse big ideas and questions with timeless, imaginative worlds. We speak to children in the here and now – to their inner lives and experience of growing up in a complex world.
