The Snow Queen : Trestle Theatre Company

This fast and funny production of The Snow Queen was originally commissioned and produced by the Unicorn Theatre as its 2011 Christmas show. In an innovative collaboration, the show has now been remounted by Trestle Theatre.

Playwright Anupama Chandrasekhar has given Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale a multi-cultural tweak, setting The Snow Queen in the expansive landscapes of India - from the burning heat of the south, through bandit country and chaotic Mumbai street scenes to a wintry palace in the icy Himalayas.

Rosamunde Hutt's production is fast-paced, dramatic and tragic-comic by turns. The gripping narrative and an appealing array of characters lead the young audience through the show. Sparkling set pieces and Bollywood-style dancing delight the eye and entertain the accompanying adults.

Choreography is by Ash Mukherjee, movement direction from Trestle's Emily Gray and set design by Sophia Lovell-Smith.
